Tradeoff

Post by Stevenloan » Mon Aug 03, 2020 5:46 am

A: Your new wife is a lot younger and more gorgeous than your ex-wife.
B: Yeah. You're right. But my new wife is not as hard-working and meticulous as my ex-wife. So that's the tradeoff.

- Hi everybody! "A tradeoff" means "a situation in which the achieving of something you want involves the loss of something else which is also desirable, but less so.". Is the sentence "So that's the tradeoff" used correctly in this case?

Thanks very much!
