|Longitudinal Study:||HILDA||Title:||Marriage breakdown in Australia: social correlates, gender and initiator status||Authors:||Hewitt, B||Institution:||Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs||Publication Date:||Jun-2008||Pages:||64||Abstract:||One of the main aims of the project was to obtain a better understanding of marriage breakdown in the Australian context, with a particular focus on gender differences in the social correlates of marriage breakdown. In this paper I present some of the key findings of that project. The project makes two main contributions to previous research into marriage breakdown in Australia: first, it examines gender differences in the social determinants of marriage breakdown in Australia; and second, previous research is extended by examining whether there are gender differences in the decision to separate, taking into account social characteristics.||URL:||https://melbourneinstitute.unimelb.edu.au/assets/documents/hilda-bibliography/working-discussion-research-papers/2008/Hewitt_Marriage_Breakdown.pdf||ISBN:||ISSN 1833-4369 ISBN 978-19211380-01-3||Keywords:||Relationships -- Dissolution; Relationships; Gender||Research collection:||Reports and technical papers|
