A revolutionary, real-world solution to the problem of unpaid, invisible work that women have shouldered for too long--from a woman tapped by Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine as the expert on this topic for a new generation of women. Eve Rodsky is changing society one marriage at a time with a twenty-first-century solution to an age-old problem: women shouldering the brunt of domestic responsibilities, regardless of whether they work outside the home. The unequal emotional labor and "invisible work" in marriage is a hot-button issue, but no one has offered a real solution to this dilemma, until now. Rodsky interviewed more than five hundred men and women from all walks of life to figure out what the invisible work in a family actually is and how to get it done efficiently. The resulting time- and sanity-saving system offers a completely original lexicon that identifies the 100 main tasks in any marriage and then divides those tasks fairly (not necessarily equally!). Fair Play allows couples to renegotiate all of the work it takes to run a home--and empowers them to reimagine their relationship, time, and purpose. With four easy-to-follow rules and a figurative card game played with your partner, winning means rebalancing your home life and reclaiming your Unicorn Space--as in, the space to develop the skills and passions that keep you interested and interesting. Let's deal you in.
