Premarital Sex and the Risk of Divorce.
Kahn, Joan R.; London, Kathryn A.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n4 p845-55 Nov 1991
Examined relationship between premarital sexual activity and risk of divorce among women married between 1965 and 1985. Found that nonvirgin brides faced considerably higher risk of marital disruption than did virgin brides. Results suggest that positive relationship between premarital sex and risk of divorce can be attributed to prior unobserved differences rather than to direct causal effect. (Author/NB)
