Product Overview

Millions of married women who work now outearn their husbands— 35 percent . . . and rising! Yet deeply ingrained personal and societal attitudes have failed to keep pace with these dramatic changes, putting a serious strain on many relationships. Now, experienced couples therapist Harriet Pappenheim and award-winning journalist Ginny Graves offer insights gleaned from interviews with more than one hundred women and men (conducted specially for this book) and present solutions to the unexpected conflicts engendered by this new family dynamic, addressing such critical topics as: Why working women still do more housework than their husbands—even when their husbands stay at home Coping with the challenges to marital stability when the husband is laid off, changes careers, or chooses to leave the workforce How to keep a relationship romantically alive and sexually active when the wife has the bigger paycheck Navigating tricky financial decision-making when she is the primary breadwinner Helping your children prepare for new family patterns in the years ahead How to communicate with your spouse about these supercharged issues And many more!

Provocative, empowering, and practical, "For Richer or Poorer" is a blueprint for marital success for couples at the forefront of this silent—and paradigm-shattering—revolution.
