Marriage and Occupational Attainment in Great Britain and the United States
Kerckhoff, Alan C.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, 40, 3, 595-9, Aug 78

The effects are very limited in the United States, but quite strong in Britain. Findings are discussed in light of expected differences in stratification systems of the two countries. (Author)
