Berzin, Stephanie Cosner; De Marco, Allison C. – Youth & Society, 2010
Current trends have allowed some youth a lengthened transition to adulthood, in part because of demographic shifts that delay the time until adolescents assume adult roles. Although these trends are well documented, less research has examined how this impacts vulnerable subgroups. Using a sample of predominantly White youth (ages 18-33) from the…

Dew, Jeffrey; Yorgason, Jeremy – Journal of Family Issues, 2010
Tests of the relationship between economic difficulties and marital distress have generally excluded retirement-aged couples.

To rectify this omission, this study uses longitudinal data from the National Survey of Families and…
