Gove, Walter R.; And Others
Journal of Family Issues, v11 n1 p4-35 Mar 1990
Discusses why marriage typically has positive effects on well-being. View presented is compatible with, and provides interpretation of, literature on family violence. Considers whether particularly competent individuals tend to be selected into marriage, thereby accounting for relationship between marital status and well-being. Examines evidence suggesting that strength of relationships between marriage and well-being is weakening. (NB)
