about

This book represents the first serious attempt in more than forty years to carry out a large-scale longitudinal study of premarital factors that predict breakup and marital quality. The author develops a theoretical rationale for predicted paths and tests those paths with the best statistical tools; practitioners will find the results useful in their attempts to help individuals and couples make decisions about marriage, marital stability, and childrearing.
