Play • 1 hr 22 min

We've often said that marriage is a business, but according to the book, Spousonomics, by Paula Szuchman & Jenny Anderson, it's really a lot more like the economy...complicated.

Get the book here.

This amazing book is so chock full of great marriage advice we read it twice and had to split it into 2 parts!

If you grew up believing you should never go to bed angry, that's just "Loss Aversion".
Found yourself talking about how you should have more sex, but can't seem to get around to it? That's just a good old fashioned case of "Supply and Demand".

Turns out that a laissez faire attitude is great for capitalism, but not so much for a relationship.

We dive into the first 5 economic principles that can make your marriage bubble burst:

Division of Labor
Loss Aversion
Supply and Demand
Moral Hazard

Then we reveal some of the strategies that can help bring you back from full on market meltdown.

At the end of the day, when 1/2 of marriages fail, having a little insurance on one of life's biggest investment is smart move!
