Remarriage, Stepchildren, and Marital Conflict: Challenges to the Incomplete Institutionalization Hypothesis.
MacDonald, William L.; DeMaris, Alfred
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v57 n2 p387-98 May 1995
Examines hypothesis that stepfamilies experience more marital conflict than do biological families. Measured remarriage's and stepchildren's impact on marital conflict frequency. Findings suggest that remarriage and stepchildren are not necessarily associated with more frequent marital conflict and that stepchildren's effect varied depending on the length of marriage. (RJM)
