Conger, Rand D.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n3 p643-56 Aug 1990
Examined the negative impact of economic hardship on a spouse's marital instability in White, middle-class couples (N=76). The results indicated economic pressures had an indirect association with married couples' evaluation of the marriage by promoting hostility in marital interactions and curtailing the warm and supportive behaviors spouses express toward each another.
