Allen, Katherine R.; Pickett, Robert S.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n3 p517-26 Aug 1987
Combined life course perspective with life history interviewing to compare 15 lifelong unmarried, childless women and 15 ever-married mothers from the 1910 birth cohort. Results suggest that linear progression from family of origin to family of procreation reveals one stream in family life course; experiences of lifelong single women revealed another which included lifelong participation in family of origin.
