This book explores a central issue in the study of close relationships: the reevaluation of traditional gender roles to take into account what is both functional and optimal for people in dual-career relationships. The author discusses how many women and men are attempting to negotiate new realities at home and work, with each other and with the larger social structure. The expectations and realities of dual-career family life are examined, benefits of increased gender equity for both same-sex and heterosexual couples explored, and continuing obstacles and sources of stress identified.
