Relationship Quality for Newly Married Husbands and Wives: Marital History, Stepchildren, and Individual-Difference Predictors.
Kurdek, Lawrence A.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v51 n4 p1053-64 Nov 1989
Examined nature and correlates of self-reported relationship quality for husband/wife pairs (N=458) in six types of newlywed couples. Classified couples' according to marital history and presence/absence of stepchildren. Found demographic, marital history, and presence/absence of stepchildren variables weak when compared to individual-differences variables (e.g., beliefs, values, attributional styles, self-appraisals).
