Mastekaasa, Arne
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n4 p901-11 Nov 1992

Findings from approximately 9,000 persons revealed that predictive power of well-being measures remained stable throughout 2- to 4-year period. Concluded that selection may play important part in producing association between marital status and well-being. (Author/NB)
