Allen, William D.; Olson, David H.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v27 n3 p301-14 Jul 2001
Developed a marital typology based on a nonrandom, national sample of 415 African American couples who took the Enriching Relationship Issues, Communication and Happiness (ENRICH) marital assessment inventory. Five marriage types were labeled as vitalized; harmonious; traditional; conflicted; and devitalized. Results were similar to findings in studies of ethnically mixed marital samples. (BF)
