A revolution is underway: within a generation, more households will be supported by women than by men.InThe Richer Sex, now in paperback, Liza Mundy takes us to the exciting frontier of this new economic order: she shows us why women will be making more money than men in the near future, what painful adjustments will have to be made along the way, and how both men and women will feel surprisingly liberated in the end.How does this new generation of breadmakers pay for a night on the town? In whose interest is it to delay commitment? Do men think of marriage the way women used to—as a bet on the economic potential of a spouse? Are women valuing new realms of male endeavor—like parenting, protection, and a margarita at the ready?With more men choosing to stay home, Mundy shows how that lifestyle has achieved higher status and the ways males have found to recover their masculinity. She takes us from Japan to Denmark to show how both sexes are adapting as the marriage market has turned into a giant free-for-all.Offering “a refreshing antidote to the dire predictions that are often made about the future of male-female relationships” (The Washington Post),The Richer Sexis a wild ride into the future.
