The Impact of Adoption on the New Parents' Marriage.
Ward, Margaret
Adoption Quarterly, v2 n2 p57-78 1998
Reviews literature on effects of adoption on parents' marriage. Notes that a general decline in marital satisfaction is related to partners' ability to balance marital and parental roles, to expectations about housework and child-care division, and to time demands. Marriage is also affected by infertility and its investigation. Finds that social support can enhance a marriage affected by adoption. (Author/KB)
