Do Mutual Children Cement Bonds in Stepfamilies?
Ganong, Lawrence H.; Coleman, Marilyn
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n3 p687-98 Aug 1988
Interviewed 105 midwestern stepfamilies, 39 of whom had reproduced together. Found no significant differences between families with mutual children and those without in terms of marital adjustment, stepparent- and parent-child relationships, and stepfamily affect. It was not possible to predict which families were most likely to reproduce together except in case of stepfather families. (Author/NB)
