Parental Marital Status Effects on Adolescent Sexual Behavior.
Newcomer, Susan; Udry, J. Richard
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n2 p235-40 May 1987
Interviewed white virgin junior high school students in 1980 and again in 1982. Found effects of parental marital status on sexual behavior and on age-graded deviance, suggesting general loss of parental control. Control loss was associated with disruption of two-parent household for boys and with the state of living in a fatherless household for girls. (Author/NB)
