Kinkeeping and Friend Keeping among Older Women: The Effect of Marriage.
Gallagher, Sally K.; Gerstal, Naomi
Gerontologist, v33 n5 p674-81 Oct 1993
Based on interviews with widows and wives, examined effects of marital status on older women's help to kin and friends. Although married women provided more help to kin than did widows, most differences could be explained in terms of greater material resources marriage provided. Widows spent more time and gave more practical help to friends than did wives. (Author/NB)
