The Relation of Childhood Abuse and Early Parenting Experiences to Current Marital Quality in a Nonclinical Sample.
Belt, William; Abidin, Richard R.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n11 p1019-30 Nov 1996
This study of 159 nonclinical married adults found that, for women, verbal abuse in childhood was predictive of marital conflict, and the caring parenting they experienced predicted the depth of the marital relationship. For men, the abuse variables did not predict any dimension of their current marital relationship. Among parenting variables, overprotection was significantly predictive of marital conflict. (DB)
