Children and Marital Happiness: A Further Specification of the Relationship.
Glenn, Norval D.; McLanahan, Sara
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v44 n1 p63-72 Feb 1982
Effects of children on their parents' marital happiness were estimated, with data from six U.S. national surveys conducted from 1973-1978 using various subpopulations. No evidence for distinctly positive mean effects was found for any subpopulation. Supports findings that, on the average, children adversely affect marital quality. (Author/RC)
