The impacts of family values and marital attitudes in young adulthood on marriage: 10 years tracking study
While the crude marriage rate has been declining and the mean age of first marriage has been rising, transition to marriage status became an importance issue. Social environments and external and internal factors of individuals have impacts on marriage entry, but previous studies were limited of cross-sectional data and could not link these factors and marriage behavior. Therefore, this study using a panel date to analyze the impacts of subjective attitudes or beliefs of individual on getting married in the same social context. Using a sample consisted of 377 unmarried young adults in the 2004 from a set of panel data, the Panel Study of Family Dynamics, this study focuses on the influences of family values and marital attitudes in young adulthood of individuals on marriage status. The results reveal that positive marital attitudes in young adulthood did have significantly influence on the probability of transitioning to marriage during 10 years. Specifically, a man placing more importance on “permanence of marriage” or a female placing more importance on “martial importance” in young adulthood have significant associations with an increased likelihood of transitioning to marriage status than others. According to the findings, the researcher recommend that marital education should focus on marital attitudes,and importance on “permanence of marriage” and “martial importance” especially, to improve positive marital attitudes and transitioning to marriage status of young adults.
