Continuity versus Change, Sanguineness versus Concern: Views of the American Family in the Late 1980s.
Glenn, Norval D.
Journal of Family Issues, v8 n4 p348-54 Dec 1987
Classified the social scientific literature on family decay and decline, finding change emphasized more than continuity, and the authors more concerned than sanguine, with a particular stress on concern for children. Reported happiness has declined among married women and men, and increased among never-married men. Cites potential difficulties for women in spite of greater egalitarianism in economic opportunities. (KS)
