The Effect of Children and Employment on the Mental Health of Married Men and Women
Gove, Walter R.; Geerken, Michael R.
Social Forces, 56, 1, 66-76, Sep 77
This article discusses data which indicate that the main reason married women tend to be in poorer mental health than men is because of the roles they typically occupy. The kinds of demands found in the home and associated with children create stress in the spouse (usually the wife) responsible for meeting these demands. (Author/GC)
