Enlarging the Understanding of Marital Commitment via Religious Devoutness, Gender Role Preferences, and Locus of Marital Control.
Scanzoni, John; Arnett, Cynthia
Journal of Family Issues, v8 n1 p136-56 Mar 1987
Refers to the literature showing that marital commitment is affected by love/caring and positive conflict resolution. Examines whether additional factors stemming from recent gender-based changes might affect the nature of the marital bond: gender role preferences, religious devoutness, and locus of control in marriage. Presents theoretical arguments supporting this gradual evolutionary emergence along with an exploratory study. (Author/KS)
