Role stressors, social support, and well‐being among two‐career couples

Role stressors, social support, and well‐being among two‐career couples The study examined relationships among work and family role stressors, work—family conflict, social support, and well‐being using data gathered from 119 men and 119 women who were partners in a two‐career relationship. Results showed that within‐domain relationships of stressors with well‐being are stronger than between‐domain relationships. Thus, work and family role stressors were primarily related to job satisfaction and family satisfaction respectively, whereas work and family role stressors as well as work—family conflict were associated with overall life stress. Similar results were found for the relationships of social support with well‐being. Work support was associated with increased job satisfaction, while spouse support was associated with greater family satisfaction. Some gender differences were found in the relationships of stressors and social support with well‐being. Implications of the findings for future research on work—family dynamics were discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Organizational Behavior Wiley

Abstract

The study examined relationships among work and family role stressors, work—family conflict, social support, and well‐being using data gathered from 119 men and 119 women who were partners in a two‐career relationship. Results showed that within‐domain relationships of stressors with well‐being are stronger than between‐domain relationships. Thus, work and family role stressors were primarily related to job satisfaction and family satisfaction respectively, whereas work and family role stressors as well as work—family conflict were associated with overall life stress. Similar results were found for the relationships of social support with well‐being. Work support was associated with increased job satisfaction, while spouse support was associated with greater family satisfaction. Some gender differences were found in the relationships of stressors and social support with well‐being. Implications of the findings for future research on work—family dynamics were discussed.
