Abstract

The empirical research on early marriage is reviewed and restated in propositional form. The 23 propositions obtained are reduced to three theoretical propositions, involving social class, heterosexual involvement, and profit between single and marital status. Three derived propositions are obtained from the original theoretical propositions. Consequences of early marriage are reviewed and stated as three propositions involving social class placement following marriage, divorce rate, and negative affect. Three derived propositions are also obtained from these. Finally, the theoretical family propositions are related to exchange theory and shown to be special cases of it.
