Concordance for Depressive Disorders and Marital Quality.
McLeod, Jane D.; Eckberg, Deborah A.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n3 p733-46 Aug 1993
Findings from interviews with 586 couples confirmed results of prior research which documented deleterious effects of depression on marriage; they did not support independent effect (either positive or negative) for concordance (when both spouses are depressed) on marital quality. Results provide evidence against general hypothesis that homogamy influences marital quality. (Author/NB)
