Summary "A book to help those who are merging their hearts, lives, and homes. When merging households, one plus one needs to equal...one. The path toward that fundamental fact, however, is not so easy. Since something's got to give--and you don't want it to be the relationship--Downsizing the Blended Home is here to help you meet the challenge of figuring out what to keep, what to let go of, and what to create together. With the same warm, narrative tone that made Downsizing the Family Home such a success--and using her own story of marriage and merger in midlife as a backdrop--Marni Jameson guides you through the turf wars and transitions, so you understand what matters and what doesn't, and can discover a style that suits you both. Along the way she interviews psychologists, designers, and couples who've made it through the process, passing along tips, tricks, and marriage-bolstering advice."--provided by publisher.
