Pasley, Kay; Furtis, Ted G.; Skinner, Martie L.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v64 n1 p130-38 Feb 2002
Identity theory model was tested with fathers (N=186) to assess whether commitment to the fathering role identity affected the psychological centrality of that role. Results showed that fathers who perceived that their wives evaluated them positively as fathers were more likely to report higher levels of involvement in child-related activities and placed greater value on the father role identity.
