Egalitarianism in Retired Rural Couples: Household Tasks, Decision Making, and Leisure Activities.
Dorfman, Lorraine T.; Heckert, D. Alex
Family Relations, v37 n1 p73-78 Jan 1988
Interviewed 149 retired rural couples to examine conjugal role organization. Found that subjects showed a traditional, gender-differentiated division of household tasks, but that household role segregation decreased significantly after retirement; spouses made majority of decisions jointly; and spouses participated in large number of joint leisure activities during retirement.
