Divorce and Kin Ties: The Importance of Gender.
Gerstel, Naomi
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n1 p209-19 Feb 1988
Interviewed 104 women and men at various stages of divorce. Showed women and men relied on kin, especially for practical aid. Men were more likely to rely on kin in early stages of divorce, while women tended to maintain ties over time. Income and presence of children shaped integration into kin networks for men and women in different ways. (Author/NB)
