It's quite easy to get distracted from your career when you're happy in love or devote all your time to securing a promotion at work only to find your relationship is on the rocks. Balancing the demands of your career and your partner's while trying to nourish a relationship and family can be tough - but it doesn't have to be. In Couples That Work, Professor Jennifer Petriglieri reveals how all couples can thrive in work and love at the same time. Petriglieri has spent the last five years studying over a hundred couples in a variety of roles and types of relationships from all over the world. Drawing on this research, Petriglieri highlights the three distinct yet predictable developmental stages that all couples go through and offers practical guidance in the form of questions, exercises and activities that couples can use to overcome the most pressing challenges they face. From couples in their mid-20s to those in their mid-60s, from heterosexual couples to same-sex couples, from high flyers to steady careerists, and from those based in the US, to those in Asia, Europe and the Middle East, Couples That Work holds something of interest to all couples in which both members are committed to their careers and to each other. Couples That Work provides two-career couples with all the insight and tools they need to have it all and thrive in work and love.
