This project examines marital distress and disruption within an ethnically diverse sample of low-income couples. Marriage licenses are used to sample 513 black, white, and Hispanic first-married newlywed couples living in low-income neighborhoods. Assessments include self-reports of personal history, stress, and marital quality, census data on neighborhood characteristics, videotaped observations of marital interactions, and interviewer ratings of the home environment. Couples are assessed in their homes and via telephone interviews 4 times over the first three years of marriage.
