Product Description

Amazon Review

Statistics show that there are more career couples than ever before. In 1995, 62 per cent of married couples were in work. This has meant that the traditional relationship roles of men and women, i.e., hunter and homemaker, have become outmoded. While this progression toward equality is welcomed, it has presented partnership problems that previously didn't exist. As a consequence, many working couples find themselves dragged down by the everyday demands of modern living.

Intended as a guide to help career couples cope with 21st century commitments, Make Love Work For You gives advice on how to restructure relationships and reprioritise lives. According to author Julia Coles, the question of whether "you work to live or live to work?" has never been more relevant. "If work dominates your life so that your family never sees you, or home life is so stressful that your work suffers, you have lost the balance that can make the difference between a life worth living, and a life that feels like a constant slog."

By including exercises and questionnaires, the book's hands-on stance will help you to understand your relationship and advise you on how to approach potential problems. As well as tackling life-changing events such as pregnancy, parenthood and the mid-life crisis, the book also includes advice on how to overcome the most common contentions: money, sex and who does the housework. And for those career couples whose affections have gone askew, Make Love Work For You offers advice on how to re-balance the relationship. --Christopher Kelly
