America’s high divorce rate is well known, but little attention has been paid to the flip side: couples who creatively (sometimes clandestinely) manage to build marriages that last longer than we ever thought possible. What’s the secret? To find out, best-selling journalist Iris Krasnow interviewed more than 200 wives whose marriages have survived for 15-70 years.
"The Secret Lives of Wives is eye opening"
Hooking up, marriage, childbirth, infidelity, divorce, menopause, widowhood - women's lives have many stages, changes, and challenges. A prevailing question on women's minds as they age is, "How do I handle the shifts in my sexuality caused by these transitions?" In Sex After…, veteran journalist and New York Times best-selling author Iris Krasnow tackles this question head-on. Krasnow traveled the country, interviewing over 150 women, from waitresses to CEOs, ages 20 to 88. Here she shares their varied stories.
