When the Brady Bunch Grows Up: Step/Half- and Fullsibling Relationships in Adulthood.
White, Lynn K.; Riedmann, Agnes
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n1 p197-208 Feb 1992
Used data from 1987-88 National Survey of Families and Households to compare contact with full- and step/halfsiblings in adulthood. Found that respondents kept in touch with step/halfsiblings, but saw them significantly less often than fullsiblings. Among stepfamilies, length of time in stepfamily and having stepfather rather than stepmother increased adult contact with step/halfsiblings. (Author/NB)
