Lebenslauf und Regulation in Paarbeziehungen: Bestimmungsgründe der Ungleichheit familiarer Arbeitsteilung
Zeitschrift für Familienforschung
On the basis of a recent survey of couples living together in Switzerland, classical and less classical explanatory factors of the un-equal division of family labour between the partners are explored. Resource-theoretical aspects are only modestly confirmed where-as the family cycle emerges as a strong con-dition that develops its effects concerning feminisation or equal distribution of family labour mainly through the female partner's occupational activity. An institutionalist ap-proach is proposed, based on the concept of sex-typed complementary master-statuses.
