Abstract

Dual‐income couples who share child care were compared with traditional couples in which the wife takes primary responsibility for the children. Couples who reported that they shared child care were found more likely to have a male first‐born, compatible work arrangements, and similar levels of income than were traditional couples. They were also more likely to feel that their relationship was egalitarian and that the division of labor in the household was satisfactory. 1992 American Orthopsychiatric Association
