COMING UNGLUED? WORKPLACE CHARACTERISTICS, WORK SATISFACTION, AND FAMILY COHESION
Abstract:Many studies that make use of the spillover model of work and family cite anecdotal stories about how a reduction in work-family spillover will directly enhance family relations. The authors argue that while work-family fit is certainly important, this relationship is complex; there are more basic processes in a marital relationship that mediate the association between work-family spillover and family functioning. This paper focuses on the effect that work has on one sphere of family functioning – family cohesion – considering the mediating roles of work-to-family spillover and negotiated aspects of the marital relationship.
