I was carrying out some of the interviews last week for my research into women that earn more money than their partners and the implications of this, and I had some very interesting conversations.

The issue that I noticed was that how people just take for granted how they behave and what they do and they make the assumption that its nothing special.  Of course, thats not always right and  I found there was value in encouraging my interviewees to be role models and recognising that what they do, may not be obvious to many others.

We don’t get provided with an instruction book on how to cope when the traditional dynamics in a relationship change, and therefore how the couples have adapted to this is really interesting.

Can’t wait now to do more of the interviews and get writing……
