First, it’s important to realize that a domestic couple works together as a team to manage a household. Therefore, you and your partner should share a commitment to service and possess strong teamwork skills.

Having a clean driving record, good references, and being able to pass a thorough background check are often crucial. Finally, it’s important to be flexible, as this role often involves working long hours and adapting to the specific lifestyle and needs of the family you’ll be serving.
