Early Marriage, Premarital Fertility, and Marital Dissolution: Results for Blacks and Whites.
Teachman, Jay D.
Journal of Family Issues, v4 n1 p105-26 Mar 1983
Investigated the impact of age and premarital fertility status on subsequent marital dissolution for Black and White women (N=6,374). Results using multivariate proportional hazards models indicate that premarital births, but not premarital pregnancies, increase risk of marital dissolution, and an increasing age reduces the risk of divorce.
