Beaton, John M.; Norris, Joan E.; Pratt, Michael W.
Family Relations, v52 n2 p143-53 Apr 2003
When their first child was 5, 30 couples discussed an unresolved issue in their marital relationship that involved one of their parents, and how they would resolve this issue. Five intergenerational themes were identified in these disagreements: balancing nuclear vs. extended family time, changing rules and roles, pleasing parents vs. spouse, struggling with power, and fearing future obligations.
