The Presence of Adult Children: A Source of Stress for Elderly Couples' Marriages?
Suitor, J. Jill; Pillemer, Karl
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n4 p717-25 Nov 1987
Studied 677 elderly residents of the Boston metropolitan area to assess the effects of the presence of adult children on elderly parents' relationships. Contrary to expectations, found no effect on elderly parents' marital conflict, even when age, educational attainment, health, and gender were controlled. Marital conflict was, however, strongly related to the frequency of parent-child conflict. (Author/KS)
