Gager, Constance T.; Sanchez, Laura A.; Demaris, Alfred – Journal of Family Issues, 2009
Children's time use--and specifically the time they spend on household chores--is an important arena for understanding social change. However, few studies accurately depict the multiple factors influencing children's household labor, including parent's and children's available time and parent's levels of work/family stress. We address these gaps…

Many studies have established that married people fare better than their never-married counterparts in terms of psychological well-being.

Tested a model consisting of social class, balance of resources between partners, and experience with violence in family of orientation (factors that have greatest salience to spouse abuse) on a sample of 484 white college students. Results suggest that models based on marital violence may have limited predictive power in accounting for violence…
