Marriage Markets and the Paradox of Mexican American Nuptiality.
Oropesa, R. S.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v56 n4 p889-907 Nov 1994
Used event histories constructed from National Longitudinal Survey of Youth to investigate roles of structural (pool of marriageable men) and cultural (familism) factors in marriage transitions of 3,853 Mexican American, African American, and Anglo-American women. Found that similarities were outweighed by differences in marriage process across groups and that cultural indicators did not explain group differences. (Author/NB)
