Relationships and Well-Being over the Life Stages

Synopsis

Guided by recent social trends, including the increased employment of women, the dramatic growth in single-parent households, heightened attention to the aging of the population and to older families, and changing attitudes toward gender roles, this study considers personal characteristics and family relationships and how they are linked with well-being over the life course. Groups investigated here include one and two-career families, both single parents and their married counterparts, older and younger couples, and modern and traditional spouses.
