Wifework: What Marriage Really Means for Women

Wifework: What Marriage Really Means for Women


Almost half of all marriages end in divorce. Three-quarters of these divorces are initiated by women. Why? Wifework.

In an era of equal opportunity, Susan Maushart reveals, wives still do the vast bulk of the physical and emotional work in a marriage. From counselling to toilet cleaning, strategic planning to quality control, it is wives who shoulder the double burden of childcare and man-care.

Wifework examines with devastating honesty how hard women will work to keep a marriage running, and looks fearlessly at the cost for children when they decide to stop.

This book is lucid, funny and provocative. Every woman will recognise its compelling message-and every married man will have to.
