FAMILY TYPES AND HAPPINESS
The nuclear, blended, grandparents as parents, adoptive, foster and single parent families were studied to compare the contributory role of different ‘relational influences’ and spouses role in family happiness, 300 spouses 150 male and 150 female were studied with Dyadic Adjustment Scale and Marital Adjustment Test? ANOVA and t-test results reflected no significant contributory differences in family happiness in all types in both conditions; however, nuclear family type surpassing individualism and collectivism influences emerged as a more happy family as is preferred in Western cultures. More studies are recommended for generalization.
