The Impact of Dual-Career Marriages on Female Professional Careers: An Empirical Test of a Parsonian Hypothesis
Martin, Thomas W.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, 37, 4, 734-742, Nov 75
This article reports results testing the Parsonian hypothesis predicting the mutual destructiveness of dual-career marriages. Comparisons were made between sociologist husbands, wives and other females in the profession. Findings strongly support an alternative hypothesis that marriage to a professional colleague promotes the successful development of a wife's career. (Author)
