3531 - Variation in Sexual and Romantic Relationships by Socioeconomic Status

Mon, August 12, 4:30 to 6:10pm, New York Hilton, Floor: Fourth Floor, New York

Session Submission Type: Paper Session 100min


Marital delay, relationship dissolution and churning, and high divorce rates have extended the amount of time adults spend outside of formal marriage. Individuals can select from a veritable smorgasbord of romantic options, including casual, short-term sexual relationships, dating as an end toward finding a long-term partner, cohabitation or living-apart-together, and/or marriage. But intimate relationships can vary in important ways by socioeconomic status, shaped by the financial resources, environments, cultural norms, etc., within which partnering occurs. This session welcomes papers that examine variation and consistencies in sexual and romantic relationships across socioeconomic status.
