In this study of the economic resources of young married couples and the economic contributions of parents to these couples, 90 couples in Lincoln, Nebraska, were interviewed.
The purposes of this study were: (1) To determine what economic resources young couples have at the beginning of their marriage and at the end of their first year of marriage. (2) To determine the type and monetary value of major economic contributions made by parents of young couples in their first year of marriage. (3) To determine any relationship between the economic resources of young couples and the monetary value of major economic contributions made by their parents during the first year of marriage. (4) To examine other factors, i.e., income of couples, income of parents, sibling position, cohesiveness of the family, and the presence of children in the beginning family, which might affect major economic contributions made by parents during this first year.
