A New Marriage Class Is In Session (Enroll Now!)

Share the Love

Spousonomics BookI rarely find the good stuff online on purpose, usually the best things find me like a happy accident. I found the newest addition to my winter reading list that way today.

Here’s how it went down: First, I finally got a chance to rent and watch the movie Eat. Pray. Love. over the weekend. I was so moved by the overall premise of the movie (I’m late – still haven’t gotten around to reading the book yet) that I started e-stalking Elizabeth Gilbert, who wrote the book the film was based on. Gilbert’s sort of been my mini-hero of the week so I’ve admittedly been all in her business online.

Today I was perusing search results mentioning her and found a raving recommendation she wrote for a new relationship self-help book coming out in February called Spousonomics. She’s really vouching for it. Gilbert says, “Spousonomics is one of the most delightful, clever, and helpful books about marriage I’ve ever seen.” Of course being a newlywed I’m instantly all over this book. I paid the Spousonomics website a visit to get more details and found that the book aims to show how economics are the key to a happy marriage.

The more I’ve read about Spousonomics, the more interested I’ve become. “Every marriage is its own little economy, a business of two with a finite number of resources that need to be allocated efficiently,” says authors Paula Sczuchman and Jenny Anderson, both journalists. Now I’m digging the idea of my marriage as a “little economy” and already beginning to ponder just how many unnecessary goods and services I consume in this economy and what products I can produce and give back. Sounds fascinating to me, so I pre-ordered one on Amazon.com. Can’t wait until it comes – until then, I’m spreading the word in case you’re as intrigued as I and would like to reserve yourself a copy too.

P.S. The Spousonomics Blog is funny, honest, and VERY educational. I’m their latest groupie for sure.
