Marriage and the Sense of Control.
Ross, Catherine E.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n4 p831-38 Nov 1991
Examined data from 809 Illinois residents surveyed in 1985. Found marriage had trade-offs for women's sense of control: it increased it by increasing household income, but it decreased it, probably by decreasing autonomy. With household income held constant, nonmarried women had highest sense of control of any group. For men, marriage had less effect on sense of control. (Author/NB)
