The Economic Behavior of Stepfamilies.
Fishman, Barbara
Family Relations, v32 n3 p359-66 Jul 1983
Describes two economic patterns that stepfamilies adopt: "Common Pot" (families pool all their resources), and "Two Pot" (couples safeguard individual resources for personal use or for their biological children). Suggests that "Common Pot" acts to unify the stepfamily while the "Two Pot" encourages biological loyalities and personal autonomy. (Author/WAS)
