Fathers’ Religious and Family Involvement at Home: Work and Family Outcomes
parents, fathers, religion, work-family conflict, job satisfaction, marital satisfaction
This study investigates the impact of fathers’ religious and family involvement on work-family conflict, work- family fit, job satisfaction, and marital satisfaction. The sample consists of employed, married fathers and their spouses from the 2001 Marriott School of Management Alumni Work and Family Survey (n = 210). Fathers’ family involvement was related to less work-life conflict, greater work-family fit, and greater self- and spouse-reports of marital satisfaction. Fathers’ family and religious involvement was related to greater self- and spouse-reports of marital satisfaction. These findings suggest the importance of fathers’ religious and family involvement to valued family and work outcomes.
