The Family Life Cycle and Spouses' Time in Housework.
Rexroat, Cynthia; Shehan, Constance
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n4 p737-50 Nov 1987
Analyzed the housework time of 1,618 White couples. Found that the salience of work and family roles in the family life cycle affected the respective amounts of time that spouses allocated to household labor. Women spent less time in housework before and after childbearing stages, and husbands spent more time in domestic labor during periods of least occupational involvement. (Author/KS)
