About The Book

A revolution is underway: within a generation, more households will be supported by women than by men.

In The Richer Sex, bestselling author and Washington Post writer Liza Mundy takes us to the exciting frontier of a new economic order, showing why more households will be supported by women than by men within a generation and how both men and women will feel surprisingly liberated in the end. She goes deep inside the lives of cutting-edge couples to paint a picture of how dating, sex, marriage, and home life are changing. She also investigates all the new, sometimes highly personal debates born in a society that can no longer assume the male is the primary breadwinner. This wild ride into the future, grounded in Mundy’s peerless journalism, will cause women and men of all generations to rethink the meaning of this social upheaval.
