No Large Convergence during Marriage for Health, Lifestyle, and Personality in a Large Sample of Norwegian Spouses.
Tambs, Kristian; Moum, Torbjorn
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n4 p957-71 Nov 1992
Tested notion that resemblance between spouses increases with marital duration because of common environmental or reciprocal influences. Data from 15,925 to 23,033 Norwegian couples revealed that correlations between spouses did not vary much with marital duration, implying stronger effect of mate selection than convergence. Found moderate convergence for some lifestyle variables; moderate divergence for personality variables. (Author/NB)
