A husband and wife were walking home from the shopping mall with their purchases when the husband began to complain that his load was too heavy. The wife turned to her husband and said "I don't know what you're complaining about because if you gave me one of your parcels, I would have twice as many as you, and if I gave you just one of mine, we would have equal loads." How many parcels were each carrying?
