Davis-Brown, Karen; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n1 p41-55 Feb 1987
Examined the impact of a variety of causal factors--economic, social, familial, and dyadic--on ethnoreligious marriages over 50 years in an Illinois agricultural community. Indicated that economic and social factors were more powerful influences in mate selection than is evident in much of the current research on premarital relationships. (Author/ABB)
