Thrice-told tales : married couples tell their stories by Diane Holmberg( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 2,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, the authors examine married couples' own stories of their relationships. A representative sample of 199 African-American and 177 White married couples were asked to tell the story of their relationship. We learn of their courtships, their weddings and honeymoons, their adjustment in the early years, and their hopes for the future. These stories were first collected a few months after their weddings, and again in the third and seventh years of their marriages." "What features of their relationships do the couples highlight as central in the early years? What can we learn about couples' marital well-being by analyzing their stories? How do the stories of men and women, of White and African-American couples, differ? These questions were systematically addressed using extensive coding schemes and comprehensive quantitative analyses. Details of the coding system and procedures are included, making this volume a useful reference for any researcher contemplating analysis of narrative data. However, the key points are also explained in simple prose and illustrated with quotes from the couples' own stories, making the book accessible to anyone with an interest in how young couples experience married life today."--Jacket

Close relationship loss : theoretical approaches by Terri Orbuch( Book )

13 editions published in 1992 in English and German and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social scientists from various disciplines have been increasingly concerned with the nature, structure, and function of close relationships. Although most of the early work on the topic of close relationships drew attention to the development of close relationships, since the mid-1970s researchers have begun to investigate the many different aspects connected to the loss of close relationships. Despite the change to a more comprehensive conceptual framework, close relationship research is often criticized for being atheoretical; the research is criticized for being purely descriptive in nature and thus lacking a more theoretical framework. Contrary to this belief, I wish to argue that researchers in the area of close relationship loss employ several critical and prominent theoretical perspectives to describe, explain, and understand the endings of relationships-thus, the fruition of this book. The major aim of this edited book is to present and illuminate, within one volume, some of these major theoretical perspectives. The volume as a whole has several unique qualities. First, within each chapter, the authors provide a general overview of the theoretical per­ spective or approach within which they examine close relationship loss

Early Years of Marriage (EYM) Project, Years 1-4, 1986-1989( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the Early Years of Marriage (EYM) Project was to determine ways in which the early development of marriage for Black couples and White couples affect the mental and physical health of spouses, marital stability, long-term marital outcomes, patterns of family life and, for those who divorce, individual adjustment to family disruption. The EYM Project began in 1986 with 373 newlywed couples--174 White couples and 199 Black couples. The marriages were all intra-racial and it was the first marriage for both spouses. Year 1 interviews, which queried the couples on various aspects of married life, began after four to nine months into the marriage. Very few respondents who originally participated in Year 1 of the study refused to participate in subsequent phases of the study. In 1986 (Year 1) and 1988 (Year 3) spouses were interviewed in their homes separately and together, with the interviews conducted by interviewers of the same race. In 1987 (Year 2) and 1989 (Year 4) shorter individual telephone interviews were conducted. In all four years, respondents were queried on a wide variety of topics such as feelings and perceptions of their own family, spouse, in-laws, and their spouse's friends, family planning, how many children they should have, how the children should be reared, childcare, and household roles and responsibilities. A series of questions was asked about reasons for getting married, how satisfying married life was, what, if any, were the special pleasures and good feelings that came from being married, how often arguments and disagreements occurred, main reasons for arguments, and how they were eventually resolved. A series of questions were also asked regarding the mental and physical health of the spouse, job satisfaction, job security, and how the job affected the family. In Year 2 and Year 4 interviews (Parts 2-4), a series of questions rega ... Cf.:

Reactions to and coping with non-marital relationship terminations by Terri Orbuch( )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present study investigates the reaction to and coping with non-marital relationship terminations. The subjects are a random sample of 80 males and 70 females. All 150 subjects are between the ages of 20-39 years old, never married, and have experienced a non-marital relationship termination in the past sixteen months. Subjects are first contacted by phone and then mailed questionnaires. Emotional, cognitive, behavioral, and physical reactions are measured. The degree to which individuals sought advice from friends, family, clergy, and professionals is also measured. The factors that have been shown to influence responses to divorce are measured to see if they also affect responses to non-marital relationship terminations

Divorced Yet Still Together: Ongoing Personal Relationship and Coparenting Among Divorced Parents( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: This study examined the ongoing personal and emotional involvement between former spouses and its association with perceptions of the quality of the coparenting relationship. Dyadic analysis of 54 formerly married couples revealed that both men and women rate their coparenting relationship as better when they also report ongoing personal and emotional involvement with their former spouse. Furthermore, when men reported ongoing involvement, their former wives reported better coparenting. The opposite effect was not found. This pattern held for both Black Americans and White Americans. Clinical implications of the findings of this study are also discussed
