Socioeconomic and Marital Outcomes of Adolescent Marriage, Adolescent Childbirth, and Their Co-Occurrence.
Teti, Douglas M.; Lamb, Michael E.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v51 n1 p203-12 Feb 1989
Examined adolescent marriage, adolescent childbirth, and their co-occurrence in adult women. Poorest socioeconomic outcomes were associated with adolescent childbirth regardless of presence or timing of first marriage. Marital instability was associated with both adolescent marriage and adolescent childbirth. Findings suggest that risk associated with co-occurrence of adolescent marriage and childbirth differs from risk of either event alone. (Author/NB)
