Abstract

The interrelationship of specific types of family relationship—marital and parent-child relations in particular—among older adults is examined. Findings suggest that caution must be exercised when generalizing about the importance of family relationships in the lives of older adults, and that future inquiries should focus on the qualitative aspects of family relations. Suggestions for professionals dealing with older people are offered.
