Marriage Stability and Instability over Time

Between 1980 and 1997 five waves of data were collected on the topic of causes of marital instability throughout the life course. Issues of wives’ work, presence of children, overall economic resources, marital satisfaction, life goals, health, relationship with in-laws, size of home, use of free time, child-care arrangements, care of aging parents, mental health issues, family structure and retirement issues were explored. Also, in 1992, 1994 and 1997, data were collected from adult offspring to develop parallel measures on the child-parent relationship. The study data are stored by the Association of Religion Data Archives.
