Commitments and Constraints to Intimacy for African American Couples at Midlife
CAROLAN, MARSHA; ALLEN, KATHERINE
This study focuses on the contributors and detractors to intimate relationships for African American couples at midlife. Qualitative analysis revealed that commitment to faith provided a foundation for familial and intimate relationships and mediated the constraints of aging and racism. African American couples were devoted to their families and to their spiritual beliefs. Midlife was a time of change and stability for couples with the competing demands of work and family. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
