Adolescent Well-Being in Cohabiting, Married, and Single-Parent Families.
Manning, Wendy D.; Lamb, Kathleen A.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v65 n4 p876-93 Nov 2003
Assesses the well-being of adolescents in cohabiting parent stepfamilies. Teens living with cohabiting stepparents often fare worse than teens living with two biological married parents. Adolescents living in cohabiting stepfamilies experience greater disadvantage than teens living in married stepfamilies. Most of these differences, however, are explained by socioeconomic circumstances. (Contains 41 references and 5 tables.) (GCP)
