Division of Household Labor and the Well-Being of Retirement-Aged Wives.
Pina, Darlene L.; Bengtson, Vern L.
Gerontologist, v35 n3 p308-17 Jun 1995
A model specifying that certain subjective beliefs and structural conditions affect the symbolic meaning wives give to their household labor divisions was tested on 144 retirement-age married women. Results indicate that wives perceive less spousal support when housework divisions are more unequal, and that this lack of spousal support leads to wives' lower marital happiness and depression.
