A Theoretical Perspcetive on Cohort Marriage and Divorce in Twentieth Century Sweden.
Schoen, Robert; Urton, William L.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v41 n2 p409-15 May 1979
Experiences of cohorts of Swedish females born between 1885-1889 and 1940-1944 are examined, and found to agree with theoretical arguments that increases in female labor-force participation improve feasibility of marriage, while reducing the desirability relative to available alternatives. Increased female labor-force participation also increases feasibility and desirability of divorce. (Author/BEF)
