A Half Century of Marriage: Continuity or Change?
Weishaus, Sylvia; Field, Dorothy
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n3 p763-74 Aug 1988
Identified six types of very long-term marriages: stable/positive, stable/neutral, stable/negative, curvilinear, continuous decline, and continuous increase. Case records of 17 marriages lasting between 50 and 69 years revealed that nearly 75 percent of the marriages showed either curvilinear or stable/positive patterns. Found no continuous decline marriages. (Author/NB)
