DoubleX Event: Money, Marriage, and the Madness of Dividing It Up


This Wednesday, Feb. 2, I'm going to be discussing the Home Economics series running in Slate at Housing Works in New York City as part of a panel called " Money, Marriage, and the Madness of Dividing It Up. " I'll be gabbing with the lovely Paula Szuchman and Jenny Anderson, the co-authors of the new book Spousonomics : Using Economics to Master Love, Marriage, and Dirty Dishes , which is out on Feb. 8.


Our own Emily Bazelon will moderate the discussion, and we'll be talking about how modern couples are managing their money and how to solve the common pitfalls they encounter. You can check out Paula and Jenny's blog here . If you're in the New York metro area and can make it down to 126 Crosby Street at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, we would love to see you!
