Quick Study: How to Make It as a Power Couple

Three challenges every successful couple must overcome.

Because their working lives and personal lives are deeply intertwined, dual-career couples face unique challenges. Three transition points typically occur during their working and love lives. During these transitions, some couples craft a way to thrive in love and work, while others are plagued by conflict and regret. By understanding each transition and knowing what questions to ask each other and what traps to avoid, dual-career couples can emerge stronger, fulfilled in their relationships and in their careers.
