Nonfamily Living and the Erosion of Traditional Family Orientations Among Young Adults.
Waite, Linda J.; And Others
American Sociological Review, v51 n4 p541-54 Aug 1986
Analyzes national longitudinal survey data to explore consequences of young adults' growing tendency to leave the parental home earlier and marry later. Reports that young women living independently become more likely to plan for employment, to lower their expected family size, and to support more non-traditional beliefs about sex roles. Non-family living had much weaker effects on young men. (KH)
