Abstract

As part of a larger national study of 309 dual-earner couples caring both for children and aging parents, participants were surveyed about the behavioral accommodations they made at home (e.g., limiting time spent with family) and at work (e.g., changing work schedules), and about their satisfaction levels in both domains. Results indicated that wives made more frequent accommodations than did husbands, both at work and at home. Accommodations made were related to satisfaction in a number of ways. For both husbands and wives, the extent to which a spouse made accommodations at home was negatively related to their own family satisfaction.
