Kurdek, Lawrence A.; Fine, Mark A.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n3 p565-72 Aug 1991
Related cognitions (ambiguity of stepfather role, optimistic perspective on stepfamilies, and myths about stepfamilies) to satisfaction with (step)parent-child relationships and family/marital/personal life in 27 mother/stepfather pairs. Compared to stepfathers, mothers had more optimistic perspective on stepfamilies, were less likely to endorse stepfamily myths, and reported greater satisfaction with (step)parent-child relationships.
