Katzev, Aphra R.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v56 n1 p89-100 Feb 1994
Examined data on 1,023 married women from 1987-88 National Survey of Families and Households. Found that mothers with at least one boy reported significantly lower propensity to divorce compared to mothers with only girls. Fathers in families with boys were more engaged with children, which was associated with mothers perceiving less disadvantage in marital relationship. (Author/NB)
