Glenn, Norval D.; Weaver, Charles N.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n2 p317-24 May 1988
Examined United States national survey data from 1972 through 1986 General Social Surveys conducted by the National Opinion Research Center. Found rather steady decline from 1972 through 1986 in positive relationship between being married and reported happiness. Change occurred primarily through increase in reported happiness of never-married males and decrease in reported happiness of married females. (Author/NB)
