Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify variables associated with role strain in a sample of 69 dual-career couples. Role strain was defined as the experienced difficulty in meeting role or role-set expectations.

The significant contributors to role strain among husbands were age of the youngest child and degree of childcare task sharing. For wives, the significant explainers of role strain were number of children and degree of importance assigned to the parental role.
