The Link between Past and Present Intimate Relationships.
Stets, Jan E.
Journal of Family Issues, v14 n2 p236-60 Jun 1993
Used data from National Survey of Families and Households to examine how past relationships influence evaluative and interactive dimensions of current relationships. Found that, after controlling for other factors, prior cohabiting relationships negatively influenced current married and cohabiting relationships. For marriage, it was cohabitation with someone other than one's current spouse that produced negative effect. (Author/NB)
