The Impact of Rational Considerations and Perceived Opinions on Young Adults' Union Formation Intentions.
Liefbroer, Aart C.; Gierveld, Jenny De Jong
Journal of Family Issues, v14 n2 p213-35 Jun 1993
Found that plans of representative sample of young adults in Netherlands concerning choice between cohabitation and marriage were predicted by rational evaluation of difference between marriage and cohabitation and by perceived opinions of significant others. Effects of family background and social status variables on union formation intentions were almost completely mediated by these subjective evaluations. (Author/NB)
