Carter, Ross E.; Carter, Charlene A.
American Journal of Family Therapy, v22 n4 p315-26 Win 1994
Explored marital adjustment and the effects of illness in a sample of 46 married couples in which 1 or both spouses are chronically ill. The levels of cohesion obtained across all spouse pairs indicate exceptionally tight bonding between spouses; however, the level of consensus suggests conflict, disagreement, and strife. (JPS)
