Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Spousonomics: Using Economics to Master Love, Marriage, and Dirty Dishes by Paula Szuchman and Jenny Anderson p. 16

"According to a 2009 survey of working women by the Boston Consulting Group, the second most common thing people argue about with their partners is household chores. In our own Exhaustive, Groundbreaking, and Very Expensive Marriage Survey, 73 percent of women said they did more than 50 percent of the housework, whereas only 40 percent of men said they did more than half the housework (you have to at least give them men credit for honesty)."

Money was the only thing that outranked housework in importance, which beat sex, children, and religion. Do you want to know how to split housework fairly? There are three different scenarios in Spousonomics for doing so.
