Gender Differences in the Relationship Between Marital Status Transitions and Life Satisfaction in Later Life
The journals of gerontology. Series B, Psychological sciences and social sciences
This study examined life satisfaction among individuals who had undergone a transition in marital status and those whose marital status remained stable over a 7-year period. In particular, using data from a large-scale, longitudinal study we assessed life satisfaction as measured in 1983 and 1990 among 2,180 men and women between the ages of 67 and 102. Groups of individuals were identified on the basis of whether a spouse was present or absent at the two measurement points.
