Patterns of Marital Change across the Transition to Parenthood: Pregnancy to Three Years Postpartum.
Belsky, Jay; Rovine, Michael
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n1 p5-19 Feb 1990
Examined changes in spouses' experiences of their mates and marital relationships from last trimester of pregnancy through 3 years postpartum. Found 4 distinct patterns of marital change (accelerating decline, linear decline, no change, modest positive increase). Findings from 128 families revealed that patterns of marital change were determined by multiple factors and were largely identifiable prior to infant's birth. (Author/NB)
