Abstract Hr En

Cilj ovog istraživanja je ustanoviti da li broj djece i kombinacija njihova spola utječe na zadovoljstvo i stabilnost veze. Ispitivanje je provedeno na uzorku od 418 parova iz Hrvatske koji zajedno žive barem godinu dana (u braku ili izvan braka). Pronašli smo da su parovi koji su roditelji manje zadovoljni vezom od parova koji nisu roditelji, ali da ne postoji razlika u zadovoljstvu vezom između roditelja s različitim brojem djece. I na uzorku muškaraca i na uzorku žena se pokazalo da su vezom zadovoljniji oni koji nemaju djece u odnosu na one koje imaju dvoje zajedničke djece. Također, na uzorku žena smo još pronašli da su vezom zadovoljnije žene koje nemaju djece u odnosu na one koje imaju jedno dijete. Dobiveni rezultati pokazuju da parovi koji nemaju djece imaju jednak rizik za prekid veze kao i parovi koji imaju djecu. Osim toga, ni broj djece nema utjecaja na stabilnost veze. Rezultati ne potvrđuju hipotezu da kombinacija spola djece u obitelji utječe na zadovoljstvo vezom, ali je pronađeno da kombinacija spola djece ima utjecaja na stabilnost veze. Muškarci koji imaju djecu oba spola imaju stabilnije veze od onih koji imaju samo kćeri. Ti rezultati su interpretirani u terminima očeve uključenosti u odgoj djece.

The aim of this study was to investigate whether there were any effects of the number of children and their sex on partner’s satisfaction and relationship stability. The participants were Croatian couples living together for at least a year (married or cohabitating). Parents report lower relationship satisfaction compared with nonparents, but there is no significant difference between parents with different number of children. Nonparents have higher relationship satisfaction than partners, both men and women, who have two children. In addition, women who don’t have children have higher relationship satisfaction than women who have only one child. Couples with children do not differ from childless couples in propensity to end their relationship. Furthermore, the number of children doesn’t have any effect on the relationship stability. This data do not support a hypothesis that children's sex effects relationship satisfaction. However, we found that children's sex has some effect on relationship stability. Men who have both boys and girls have higher relationship stability than those with girls only. These results are discussed in terms of father’s involvement in childrearing.
