Intimate Pathways: Changing Patterns in Close Personal Relationships across Time.
Hetherington, E. Mavis
Family Relations, v52 n4 p318-31 Oct 2003
Presents findings from the Virginia Longitudinal Study of Divorce and Remarriage (VLSDR) describing diverse patterns of intimate relationships and personal adjustment. Both a conflictual, unsatisfying marriage and a divorce were associated with diminished psychological, social, and physical well-being. Both marital conflict and divorce in the family of origin elevated the risk of marital instability in young adult offspring. (Contains 49 references and 6 figures.) (GCP)
