Midlife Marital Status Differences in Social Support Relationships with Adult Children and Psychological Well-Being.
Marks, Nadine F.
Journal of Family Issues, v16 n1 p5-28 Jan 1995
Examined marital status differences in attitudes about parental obligation, social support relationships with adult children, and psychological well-being among 3,002 midlife parents (ages 35-64) of nonresident adult children. Parents in first marriages were most likely to be giving support. Giving to adult children was associated with more well-being than only receiving from children. (Author/NB)
