Working with a spouse isn't for everyone -- but for those couples who figure out the ground rules, it can be both personally and financially rewarding.
In a FORTUNE article, four couples who work together talk about how to make it work. For example, Jessie Randall, co-founder of a shoe and handbag brand, says she and her husband have well-defined roles. "Brian and I have really complementary skill sets. I've always headed up creative and design. He really runs the business, oversees e-commerce and sales. The one place where we work together is marketing."
Barry Silverstein and Sharon Wood, married for thirty years, also make working together work. They started a service business together, ran it successfully for seven years, and then sold it. Read about their experiences and learn how you can duplicate their success in the couple's book, Let's Make Money, Honey: The Couple's Guide to Starting a Service Business.
