Center for Family and Demographic Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “Stepfamilies, Parenting Complexity, Stressors, and Young Adults’ Relationship Quality,” by Wendy D. Manning, Monica A. Longmore, and Peggy C. Giordano (WP2016-04, February 2016, .pdf format, 34p.).

Abstract:

The well documented diversity of American family life has led to growth in stepfamilies and complex parenting responsibilities that extend beyond the traditional configuration of two parents raising shared biological children within their household. We investigated the influence of self-reports of parenting complexity (only shared, only non-shared, and both shared and non-shared children) on indicators of relationship quality including satisfaction, uncertainty, verbal conflict, and physical aggression. Respondents included 500 young adults in different-sex marital and cohabiting unions (Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study). Contrary to expectations, we found that individuals in relationships with non-shared children did not, on average, report lower relationship quality than their counterparts with only shared children. Although relationship stress (finances, time, trust) influenced relationship quality, they did not mediate associations between parenting complexity and relationship quality. Our findings speak to measurement and theoretical issues that may guide future research on stepfamilies and parenting complexity.
