Social Integration and Divorce.
Booth, Alan; And Others
Social Forces, v70 n1 p207-24 Sep 1991
Longitudinal data on over 1,300 married persons suggest that divorce was deterred by absence of divorce in reference group (normative integration) and was deterred for shorter marriages by more friends and organizational affiliations (communicative integration). Sharing friends and organization affiliations with spouse (functional integration) may be only an extension of martial happiness, which reduces divorce rate. (36 references) (SV)
