How to thrive in a relationship when you're the richer half.

A revolution is a foot- The percentage of breadwinning women-young and old, married and single-has been growing exponentially for decades. Today, women under thirty have a higher median income than men in nearly every major city in the country, and the number of married couples across every age bracket with top-earning wives is four times greater than it was forty years ago. But if you're that woman, this shift has serious consequences- Not only are you less likely to get married, but if you do, chances are you'll be unhappy, feel pressured to work fewer hours, take on the lions' share of housework and childcare, and have a greater risk of divorce. Your marriage is also uniquely vulnerable to infidelity on both sides. And if your're single, good luck in the dating world.

Enter personal finance expert (and breadwinner) Farnoosh Torabi, who has written the ultimate guide to managing and navigating the emotional, social, and financial terrain crated by this new economic order. When She Makes More includes eye-opening stories from a broad range of women, startling new research, and the surprising results of a large survey. Torabi reveals ten essential rules, with lessons like-

Buy Yourself a Wife- Stop feeling guilty about spending money on things-house cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping-you think you should take care of yourself. Outsource whatever you can for your happiness . . . and sanity.

Cater to the Male Brain- Understand how men think and what motivates their behavior. It will do a long way to help you communicate effectively, share responsibilities fairly, and avoid power struggles.

Don't Settle for a Mr. Mom- The math may conclude it's best for him to quit his job to become the primary caregiver, but there are some grave trade-offs to consider

Required reading for any woman-from singletons and single moms to those in long-standing marriages- When She Makes More helps solve the problems that can pile up and derail a relationship when she earns more, and opens the door to a new path to love, fulfilment, and success at work and home.

I often find books of this sort a little confusing. Why hadn't I thought of writing a book such as this? Perhaps its just lack of ambition. Perhaps its because I would never have believed that what's between these covers merits being puffed up into a book. I mean, it's all so terribly obvious. Maybe it should have been called `When She Makes More for Dummies`` Entertaining but not hardly worth reading at one sitting,
