Stewart, Susan D.; Manning, Wendy D.; Smock, Pamela J.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v65 n1 p90-104 Feb 2003
Investigates whether fatherhood, and specifically involvement with nonresident children, influence men's entrance into marital and cohabiting unions. Findings suggest that neither resident nor nonresident children affect men's chances of entering a new marriage, but nonresident children have a positive effect on cohabitation.
