Larson, Jeffry H.
Family Relations, v33 n4 p503-11 Oct 1984
Examined effects of unemployment in 41 unemployed and 40 employed couples. Results indicated that the unemployed did not have significantly lower feelings of self-esteem but did report lower marital adjustment, poorer marital communication, and lower satisfaction and harmony in family relations. Traditional marital role expectations had a negative effect. (JAC)
