Couples That Work

How To Thrive in Love and at Work




Acclaimed professor reveals how working couples can successfully combine love and work

Finding fulfilment in both love and work isn't easy--but it is possible.

Most advice for working couples fails because it treats the challenge of balancing two careers as a zero-sum game in which one partner's gain is the other's loss. This book is different.

In Couples That Work, professor Jennifer Petriglieri shifts away from the language of sacrifice and trade-offs, and focuses on how couples can tackle the challenges they will face throughout their lives--together.

Petriglieri identifies three key phases of exploration and growth in every couple's work-life journey and provides tools to help couples navigate three pivotal questions together:

· How can we make this work?
· What do we really want?
· Who are we now?

Based on five-years research interviewing over a hundred couples from thirty countries, Couples That Work is filled with vivid, real-life stories. Full of engaging exercises and activities, this book will help every couple work out their own unique way to successfully combine love and work.
