Description of this Book

A smart and concise guide to staying together drawing on science, expertise and years in the marital trenches to explain why marriage is better for your health, your finances, your kids and your happiness. After covering the relationship beat for Time magazine for ten years, Australian journalist Belinda Luscombe realised there was a surprisingly upbeat and little-known story to tell about the benefits of staying together for the long haul. Casting a witty, candid and probing eye on the latest behavioural science, she has written a fresh and persuasive report on the state of our unions. MARRIAGEOLOGY presents facts and tips, debunks myths and provides a fascinating mix of research, anecdotes and wisdom from a wide range of approaches - from how properly dividing up chores can result in a better sex life to the benefits of fighting with your spouse (though not in the car) to whether or not to tell your partner that you lost $70,000 (although that last one might just be her). The good news is that sticking together is easier than it looks.
