Couples That Work: How To Thrive in Love and Work 
Finding fulfilment in both love and work is easier than you think.
Every couple wants a happy relationship and a meaningful career but how do we balance both at the same time?
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.
Whether you are:
* struggling to combine two busy lives for the first time * considering a career pivot but worried what it means for your relationship (and finances) * exploring the impact of a job relocation on your family * failing to juggle the demands of being a parent and a worker * or figuring out what you and your partner want out of retirement
this book has got you covered.
Based on five-years research interviewing over a hundred couples from thirty countries across multiple industries, Couples That Work is filled with vivid, real-life stories.
Identifying common triggers and traps working couples face, and offering resolution and reflection through tools and engaging exercises like couple contracting and location mapping, Petriglieri helps every couple design their own unique way to successfully combine love and work at every stage of their work-life journey.
