Marital Satisfaction in Later Life: The Effects of Nonmarital Roles.
Lee, Gary R.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n3 p775-83 Aug 1988
Predicted that marital satisfaction would be higher in later stages of life cycle because of diminishing demands of nonmarital roles. Data from 2,327 older married persons showed that departure of children was associated with higher levels of marital satisfaction; other hypotheses based on role overload theory received no support and were contradicted in many cases.
