Do you remember that hot new marriage how-to book I blogged about pre-ordering last week and have been tweeting about ever since? Just in case you missed it, here’s a quick recap: It’s called Spousonomics: Using Economics to Master Love Marriage and Dirty Dishes, and it’s the awesome culmination of two years of hard work and research done by journalists (and wives) Paula Szuchman (The Wall Street Journal) and Jenny Anderson (The New York Times) who set off to prove that every marriage is its own little economy and therefore brushing up on your economics is in fact the key to a happy healthy marriage. The book is filled with economic lessons, stories from real couples, and honest commentary on what it really takes to make your marriage work.
The Man and I were actually asked to be guests on Yahoo’s Tech Ticker show to talk about our marriage and how certain scenarios in it are relatable to the ones presented in Spousonomics. While I was there I was given a free copy of the book, so I’ve decided to give away the brand new one I just got in the mail from Amazon.com. I’m only on the first chapter so far of my copy, but if you’re all about making your marriage work and having fun with it, I can assure you that this book is quite the page-turner.
So let’s make this fun, shall we? One of the concepts in the book is about dispelling the 50/50 division of labor myth. Their tip: Do what you’re “relatively” good at and “trade” the rest. So, to enter to win, post one thing you do best in your relationship and something you don’t. I’m going to read the comments to The Man (without saying who said what) and his favorite get’s the book. (He’s better at making unbiased decisions, so how’s that for some quick and savvy division of labor?) Okay post your answer below. The winner will be selected and contacted at 10 pm tonight.
Don’t want to wait? Order your copy here now.
