You Can't Always Get What You Want: Incongruence between Sex-Role Attitudes and Family Work Roles and Its Implications for Marriage.
McHale, Susan M.; Crouter, Ann C.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n3 p537-47 Aug 1992
Examined incongruencies between spouses' sex-role attitudes and division of family work and links with marital evaluations and family characteristics. Findings from 153 couples revealed that wives with nontraditional sex-role attitudes but traditional family work roles and husbands with traditional attitudes but egalitarian roles evaluated relationships more negatively compared to other women and men and to their own spouses.
