Abstract

The author tests the hypothesis that the inverse relationship between marital happiness and disruption will be strong under conditions of high marital alternatives and weak under conditions of low marital alternatives. Using micro data from a sample of 400 white, urban, American couples with wives under 35 years of age, he finds no support for the hypothesis.
