This data collection, which focuses on married couples, investigates the effects of dual careers and job status on marital partners. Four major mechanisms were identified to account for the relationships between higher occupational status of the wife and negative marital and/or career outcomes. These mechanisms include (1) competition between husband and wife, (2) conflict between role expectations and performances, (3) conflict with respective gender identities, and (4) lack of role complementarity in the relationship. The data collection effort sought to determine if any of these mechanisms or combination of mechanisms cause the wife to stay out of the labor force, cause the husband's occupation to limit the wife's occupational attainment, or cause the wife's higher occupational attainment to result in marital dissatisfaction. Major variables include labor force participation, occupation, gender identity, role expectations, perception of expectations, perception of performance, role complementarity, competition, marital satisfaction, career commitment, support for wife's career, and perceived status differences. The unit of analysis is the married couple.
