Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of the present study was to identify variables which are related to the degree of commitment to a dual-work lifestyle held by engaged individuals who indicated their intentions for such workfamily patterns after marriage. The study also grouped couples according to patterns of commitment, and examined differences by group and by gender on a number of variables related to future work and family expectations. One hundred and sixty six engaged individuals, including 52 couples, all of whom indicated their intententions for establishing dual-work marriages, completed questionnaires. Six independent variables were entered into a series of regression analyses of the dependent variable, commitment to a dual-work lifestyle, as measured by a scale developed specifically for this research which utilized varying economic and family situations, as well as varying degrees of preferred work involvement for the wife. While none of the predictor variables emerged as strong predictors of commitment, discussion centered on the significance of the development of a scale which is sensitive to family variables, and gender differences in responses.
