The Effect of Parents' Marital Satisfaction on Young Adults' Adaptation: A Longitudinal Study.
Feldman, S. Shirley
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v7 n1 p55-80 1997
Two surveys measured parents' marital satisfaction and children's perception (as adolescents) of family closeness or cohesion and, six years later, feelings (as young adults) of closeness to parents. Found that mothers' marital satisfaction significantly affected adaptation of grown offspring, whereas fathers' satisfaction did not. Family closeness or cohesion also mediated some outcomes. (EAJ)
