Outcomes of Marital Separation: A Longitudinal Test of Predictors
Preview not available

Abstract

Studies of marital separation have often combined it with divorce or assumed that separation represents only a stepping stone to other marital statuses. This analysis examines three types of separation: those leading to divorce, those leading to reconciliation, and long-term unresolved separations. Demographic variables are used to predict which women, out of those reporting any period of separation during a 15-year longitudinal panel, move toward each outcome. Data from the NLS cohort of mature women from 1967-1982, analyzed with logit techniques, show important differences among these groups of separating women in education, income, and race.
