Are We Doing It All Wrong? Searching for Satisfaction in Marriage and Parenthood

Heather Havrilesky (Foreverland: On the Divine Tedium of Marriage) will be in conversation with New York Times’s Jessica Grose about the fantasies, and the reality, of finding happiness at home.  From the enormous economic burden of parenting (and general lack of social support available to families) to the assorted ruptures and reassessments ushered in by the COVID-19 pandemic, navigating the joys and pains of marriage and kids can seem more messy and complicated than ever. Or has it always been fraught?
