Introducing a Special Issue: On the Need to Theorize Marital Equality

Keywords

marital equality, marital satisfaction, marital success, marital adjustment

Abstract

We suspect no concept has been the subject of more research—generally as the dependent variable of interest—than marital quality, including marital satisfaction, adjustment, success, and their various permutations. Some may wonder reasonably why there is a need to “theorize” marital quality. However, it is the often taken‐for‐granted feature of marital quality, the lack of adequately calling into question just how one is to theorize the marital relation, that concerns us as scholars.
