Husbands and Wives: The Dynamics of Married Living
Husbands and Wives The Dynamics of Married Living Author:Robert O. Blood, Donald M. Wolfe What is marriage really like in America today? How do husbands and wives really get along with each other? Who makes the important family decisions, and in what kinds of marriage do husbands assume most household tasks? — Complementing the many studies in this field that analyze the marital habits of American men and women, Husbands and Wives cov... more »ers a great deal more than the sexual aspect of marriage. It is one of the first books to describe a cross-section of an entire community (metropolitan Detroit) and to provide comparative data on the effects of education, socail status, religion, and age difference on American marriages.
Each chapter presents a general essay on an important facet of marriage, an historical sketch of its development in America, as well as empirical analysis drawn from field research. As a result, the pattern of American marriage may be seen more clearly than ever before.
