Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller. Jean Paul Sartre and Simone De Beauvoir. Woody Allen and Mia Farrow. History is littered with cautionary tales of couples who tried to work together, only to be ripped apart by frustration, jealousy, and sleeping with the other's adopted daughter. But one couple -- married for 30 years -- has made a business out of helping other couples manage both their mutual love and joint economic ventures. And recently, they published a book about how other couples can work through troubled times.

Miriam Hawley and Jeffrey McIntyre had only been together for four years, when they started doing couples therapy. They built a psychotherapy business and leadership consulting firm, side by side, and in the following decades helped thousands of couples work through troubled times, interviewing dozens more for their 2012 book, You and Your Partner, Inc. Entrepreneurial Couples Succeeding in Business, Life & Love.
