Abstract

The major purpose of this study was to determine if a male's sex-role identification is related to preferred work involvement for his future wife. Although sex-role identification was not found to be related to males' preferred work involvement, significant relationships were found between preferred work involvement for future wives and stages of the family life cycle, financial conditions, and mother's work history. Subjects were 342 males who responded to a questionnaire mailed to a 10% random sample of undergraduates.
