Couples That Work
  • Couples That Work

  • Brought to you by Penguin.

    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 successfully tackle the challenges they will face throughout their lives--together. The book explores key questions like:

    Can you and your partner have equally important careers or must you prioritise one over the other?
    How can you juggle children or family commitments without sacrificing your work?
    Does every decision require compromise or can you find solutions that benefit you both?

    Identifying common triggers and traps working couples face, and offering resolution and reflection through tools and engaging exercises, this book will help every couple design their own unique way to combine love and work at every stage of their journey.

    Finding fulfilment in both love and work may just be easier than you think.
