Description
The modern woman has felt Backlash and worked The Second Shift. but now she’s wearing the pants, she’s in charge of everything, and it’s ruining her marriage. She’s The Superior Wife, and this book is coming to her rescue!

As women have risen in the work world, their marriages have been transformed, too: The wife has become the superior spouse. This book is for every wife who brings home the bacon, fries it up in a pan that she washes, and drops from exhaustion at the end of each day, while her husband watches the game. The Superior Wife explains how she got here and reveals how she can work her way back to marital equality. Bringing together personal stories of everyday couples and expert social analysis, psychologist Carin Rubenstein provides readers with an intelligent and groundbreaking look into a disturbing marital trend: In two out of three marriages, women are running the show while men take it easy. As a result, more and more women are rejecting marriage as a viable social institution. The Superior Wife provides a look into the heart of modern marriage, as it reveals and explores:

• Six degrees of superiority: from being the multitasker to the decider • Top 26 topics wives nag their husbands about, from A to Z

• Four types of modern marriage, from Captain and Mates to Even-Stevens

• Top ten sex wishes of husbands and wives

• Four types of married sex, from Old Shoe Sex to Hot Sex

• 21 ways to fix a superior wife marriage

Filled with personal stories and packed with tips for curing the syndrome, The Superior Wife gives women the tools they need to step down from their thrones, reconnect with their husband, and have happier and healthier marriage.
