The Nature and Predictors of the Trajectory of Change in Marital Quality for Husbands and Wives over the First 10 Years of Marriage.
Kurdek, Lawrence A.
Developmental Psychology, v35 n5 p1283-96 Sep 1999
Estimated parameters of the trajectory of change in marital quality over first 10 years of marriage. Found that both spouses started trajectories of change at fairly high levels of marital quality, with quality declining rapidly in the early years, stabilizing, and then declining again. Individual-differences variables predicted initial status of trajectory. Parenthood status was related to rate of decline. (Author/KB)
