This study examined the relationship between perceived stress resulting from job insecurity and marital and family functioning. Data were collected from 111 married couples (N = 222) in which at least one of the spouses was working in an insecure job environment. Regression analyses showed that job insecurity stress was related in a systemic way to marital and family dysfunction and the number of family problems reported. Implications for family life education, marriage and family therapy, and organizational policies are discussed.
