Abstract or Summary
  • Using data from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development’s Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development (SECCYD), this study assessed the implications of the division of labor on relationship intimacy for married and cohabitating dual-earner couples (N= 392 couples). The study focused on what mothers and fathers say they do in child care and household labor, what they are recognized for doing, and how these are associated with each partner's evaluation of relationship intimacy. It also examined how differences in the contributions of mothers and fathers in child care and household labor are associated with relationship intimacy. Structural equation models revealed that the recognition that mothers and fathers give each other for household labor offsets the negative effect of their household labor on relationship intimacy. For mothers, the recognition they receive from fathers for child care partially offsets the negative effects of child care on relationship intimacy. Fathers' evaluations of intimacy are highest when he contributes a certain amount of the child care, and his ratings of intimacy are lower when his child care load is anything more or less. Mothers' evaluations of intimacy lower as the discrepancy between what she says she does in reference to what the fathers' says he does in child care increases. These findings reveal it is important for partners to recognize the respective work they do in child care and household. For fathers particularly, it may be important for them to do a better job of being aware of what their partner is contributing to child care.

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Julie Kurtz(julie.kurtz@oregonstate.edu), reason: Rejecting because starting with Chapter 6 the page numbers listed on the Table of Contents and List of Tables are one number off. Chapter 6 is listed as page 44 but it's actually 43. Bibliography is 45 but is actually 44. Once revised, log back into ScholarsArchive. Go to the upload page and replace the attached file with the revised file and resubmit. Thanks, Julie on 2013-12-12T18:00:01Z (GMT)
