The authors examine the intergenerational transmission of marital instability. Those respondents whose parental homes were disrupted by death or divorce have higher rates of marital instability in their own marriages. Except for black males, a greater transmission effect was found among respondents from childhood homes disrupted by divorce or separation rather than death. Implications from the literature on sex-role learning in children are examined by comparing the transmission effect for respondents who lived in households of different composition after having their parental homes disrupted.

This paper investigates the influence of environment, specifically residence in a central city or suburb, on the psychological well-being of a sample of retired men drawn from the NLS of Older Men. Three issues were explored: (1) whether there were statistically significant differences among retired men living in central cities, suburbs, and non-metropolitan areas in their well-being, personal and social characteristics, networks, and activities; (2) whether differences in location exerted independent and interactional effects on well-being; and (3) whether location indirectly influences well-being through activities. Results indicate that: (1) retired men living in suburbs experienced the highest mean well-being scores; (2) poor health reduced the well- being of retired men in the suburbs to a greater extent than in the central cities; and (3) suburban location indirectly influenced well-being by way of its effect on informal activities.
