Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to examine the influence of stressors and benefits related to work and family on dual-military marriage wellbeing. The central hypothesis of the proposed research is that individuals in dual-military marriages are exposed to unique stressors and benefits in the work and family domain. Those individuals in dual-military marriages who receive little or no support from either domain will experience both negative health and lower subjective feelings of wellbeing. The first year of this study has been focused on research lab development, construction of measures, and contacting military units concerning recruitment of participants. We have successfully made contact and have been approved to administer surveys and interviews focus groups to five different military bases Fort Bragg, Fort Campbell, Fort Bliss, Fort Hood, Fort Shafter. Data collections will begin July 2013. We have also been approved to administer surveys and interviews to the Arizona National Guard. This data collection starts June 2013. Since the data collections did not occur during the reports time period Jun May 2013 we currently do not have findings to report.
