OFFSITE EVENT at Northwestern/Kellogg School's New Global Hub
The primary functions of marriage from 1620 to 1850 were providing food, shelter, and protection from violence; from 1850 to 1965, the purpose revolved around love and companionship. But today, a new kind of marriage has emerged, one oriented toward self-discovery, self-esteem, and personal growth. In his new book The All-or-Nothing Marriage: How the Best Marriages Work, Northwestern University psychology professor Eli Finkelcombines cutting-edge scientific research with practical advice; he considers paths to better communication and responsiveness; he offers guidance on when to recalibrate our expectations; and he even introduces a set of must-try "love hacks."
Don't miss this special conversation between Finkel and Peter Sagal, host of NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me"--which promises to be an eye-opener for those thinking about getting married or remarried, and for anyone looking for illuminating advice that will make a real difference to getting the most out of marriage today.
