Using data on 2,031 adults, 4 levels on a continuum of social attachment are compared: (1) no partner; (2) partner outside the household; (3) living with partner; and (4) married to partner. Results indicate that the higher the level of social attachment, the lower the level of psychological distress. (JPS)
