Tamashiro, Roy T.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v8 n4 p443-52 Dec 1979
This study involved the construction of a theory and scoring manual for assessing the developmental stages of individuals' concepts of marriage. Four stages (Magical, Idealized Conventional, Individualistic, and Affirmational) were identified. Reliability was acceptable. Correlations with age, schooling, ego development, and years of marriage support the marriage concepts stage sequence. (Author/CP)
