Frances Goldscheider Comments on
Marriage and Cohabitation

by Arland Thornton, William Axinn, and Yu Xie
Published by University of Chicago Press, 2007

"This is an important book that should be read by anyone who cares about research on young adulthood in the United States. It is full of insights and provocative findings linking the generations. The analyses carefully account for pathways of influence on young adults' decision-making about union formation that flow from the lives of their parents and even their grandparents, and are able to distinguish effects that operate most strongly on children from those whose effects are most strongly felt in young adulthood. A tremendous accomplishment."
