Marital choice and quality of relationships - a research note on hypotheses and sampling
Ohiggins, K
Abstract: The apparent rise in the number of breakdowns in marriage in Ireland is causing concern. Little or no research has been undertaken to enquire into causes of breakdown peculiar to Ireland. The existing literature is used here to formulate some hypotheses for the study of engagement and marriage in Ireland. The difficulties of choosing a random sample are discussed and one method of obtaining a sample is tested but found to be impractical.
