John Scanzoni developed a model of marriage that is considered by many to be the preferred norm for American marriages even today. His model was based on specific roles for each partner divided strictly along sexual lines. This model marriage includes a husband who is the wage earner and thus the sole provider for the family and a wife who stays at home, bears children, and is responsible for.
Unlike most other writers, his 1996 essay makes generous use of functionalist jargon and is almost totally governed by SF logic. To be sure, he manages a few slight concessions to the changes of recent decades. For example, although he proposes a neo-standard family, it is in almost every important aspect merely a rehashing of Parsons' standard family (Scanzoni 2001b). Popenoe simply.
Self-service technology (SST) defines as a technology interface that enables customer to produce and consume services without direct assistance from firm employees (Meuter et al. 2000). SST can certainly reduce labor cost to the service provider where personal service can provide direct service to client. This trend raises some important point about the impact of technology on service quality.John Scanzoni developed a model of marriage that is considered by many to be the preferred norm for American marriages even today.

A review of the international research literature on family resilience shows that processes that operate at the family level - including strong emotional bonds, effective patterns of communication, the use of coping strategies and family belief systems, especially those based on spiritual or religious values - are important means by which families manage to cope with adversity.
This is an older essay, not produced for an academic audience, but for a small group of women in our church who wanted an explanation for the position I and some other leaders at Xenos take regarding women in ministry. Since writing this paper in the 80's the author has modified his views based on more recent research. See his current views in The Role of Women in the Church.Read More
Structural-Functional Theory. Jennie McIntyre (1966) was the first scholar to discern the curious paradox of structural functionalism (SF) within the realm of research and theory about families. Although only a relatively few researchers in the 1960s labeled themselves as SF-types, the great bulk of published work in the study of families was, she noted, shaped by SF assumptions, perspectives.Read More
Toward an Inclusive Theology: The Systematic Implications of the Feminist Critique By Randy L. Maddox Those of us in the evangelical stream of Christianity who have been sensitized 7 by the feminist critique of the injustice and oppressiveness of our male-domi-nated and male-normative society soon find ourselves in a dilemma.

Abstract. Interest in the family and in family life education has become widespread and multifaceted during the past few decades. This interest, however, is not a new phenomenon; it evolved during the latter part of the nineteenth and early part of the twentieth centuries.Read More
As it now stands, much of our knowledge about ethnic minority families is grounded in theories of structure and function, as described by Kingsbury and Scanzoni (1993). Families and society are interacting systems. Families contribute members to society for the workforce. They socialize children and make them productive members of society. However, when families vary substantially from the.Read More
Scanzoni's model nicely illustrates how emergent properties may operate to maintain or sustain relationships, eliminating the need for each partner in the dyad to evaluate the costs and benefits of the relationship frequently. This approach, incidentally, seems quite compatible with Altman and Taylor's (1973) conception of relationship development in terns of social penetration and privacy.Read More
Another factor affecting the degree of children's influence in purchase decisions is the stage of the decision process. With one exception (Moschis and Mitchell (1986)), all of the studies examining children's influence across decision stages have used a three-stage model of the decision process. The three stages include problem recognition, information search and choice (Moschis and Mitchell.Read More

Ferm’s Contemporary American Theologies 1 contains eight chapters, five of which discuss currently fashionable theological positions. Of these five, one is “evangelical theology,” one Roman Catholic theology, and three are various forms of liberation theology: Latin.Read More

Model 2 adds the Wave 1 CES-D variable (and, for Table 3, the Wave 1 drunkenness measure), Model 3 adds socioeconomic measures, Model 4 adds the parenthood measure, Model 5 adds number of recent sex partners, and Model 6 adds the self-image index. This iterative approach allows me to assess the impact of each set of mediators on the relationship status effects.Read More
