THE PERSONAL AND MARITAL ADJUSTMENT OF MOTHERS AND OF VOLUNTARILY AND INVOLUNTARILY CHILDLESS WIVES.

Abstract

The effect of children upon levels of personal well-being and the quality of marriages is a central topic of family research. In this study 60 mothers, 36 voluntarily childless wives, and 53 infertile women completed several measures of psychological well-being and marital adjustment. Levels of personal well-being for the three groups were very similar across indices. Infertile women, however, did report lower global levels of well-being and rated life as less interesting, emptier, and less rewarding. They were less satisfied than other women with the amount of success, interest, variety, and fulfillment in their daily lives. Mothers and voluntarily childless wives were similarly satisfied with their lives. Both voluntarily and involuntarily childless women were more pleased than mothers with the amount of freedom and flexibility in their lives, especially how they could spend their time and their levels of personal privacy, relaxation, and independence. Infertile women were also more positive about the amount of love in their lives and the level of support they received from family and friends. Either because of the benefits of childfree living or because of the sharing of their trials and frustrations in trying to have a child, infertile women reported more loving marital relationships. They were generally more satisfied with their marriage than were mothers and the voluntarily childless. In contrast to other women, the voluntarily childless reported more time with their husbands, more exchanges of ideas, and higher levels of consensus.
