Patterns of Courtship for Remarriage: Implications for Child Adjustment and Parent-Child Relationships.
Montgomery, Marilyn J.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n3 p686-98 Aug 1992
Examined how courtship patterns for remarriage influence developing child and child's relationship in stepfamily (n=57 stepfather families). Longer time spent in divorced, mother-custody household was associated with continuing difficulty in stepfather-stepchild relationships and lower levels of child's social competence. Children whose mother cohabited before remarriage appeared more socially competent after remarriage and experienced less negative family relationships. (Author/NB)
