  • The Life Course Cube: A Tool for Studying Lives
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 24 November 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Laura Bernardi, Johannes Huinink, Richard A. Settersten This paper proposes a conceptualization of the life course as a set of behavioral processes characterized by interdependencies that cross time, life domains, and levels of analysis. We first discuss the need for a systematized approach to life course theory that integrates parallel and partially redundant concepts developed in a variety of different disciplines. We then introduce the ‘life course cube,’ which graphically illustrates and defines the time-domain-level interdependencies and their multiple interactions that are central to understanding life courses. Finally, in an appendix, we offer a formal framework to account for these interactions in a language that can be readily adopted across disciplines. Our aim is to provide a consistent and parsimonious foundation to further develop theories and methods of life course research and integrate life course scholarship across disciplines.
       
  • Beyond the nuclear family: Personal networks in light of work-family
           trajectories
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 November 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Aeby Gaëlle, Gauthier Jacques-Antoine, D. Widmer Eric Individuals develop personal networks in a cumulative way over the life course, with early adulthood being a critical period with multiple transitions relating to family formation and entry into the labour market. Existing research on personal networks and the life course usually stresses the impact of single life transitions and events on the composition of personal networks. Contrastingly, this paper investigates the impact of whole work-family trajectories over a retrospective time period of 20 years corresponding to early adulthood (roughly 20 to 40 years old) on the composition of personal networks. Drawing on a Swiss sample of individuals born between 1970 and 1975, results revealed the critical impact of the family trajectories for the development of personal networks, and showed how the current diversity of personal networks is accounted for by trajectories deviating from the family developmental model.
       
  • Widowhood, depression and blood pressure: A U.S.-England comparison
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 November 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Aniruddha Das ObjectivesThis study queried associations of older adults’ widowhood with their systolic and diastolic blood pressure (BP), and mediation of these linkages by depression.MethodsData were from the 2008 and 2012 waves of two surveys: the U.S. Health and Retirement Study (HRS) and the English Longitudinal Study of Aging (ELSA). Analyses used lagged dependent variable models to examine widowhood effects, and a counterfactual approach to test mediation.ResultsPositive widowhood-BP linkages were found only among HRS women. Associations were negative for HRS men’s systolic BP, and absent in ELSA. These sex- and societal differences seemed driven not by linkages of widowhood with depression—which remained constant across all subgroups—but by that of depression with BP. For both outcomes, the latter was positive for HRS women, negative for HRS men, and absent in ELSA. Accordingly, depression mediated over a third of HRS women’s widowhood effects. A substantial proportion of this influence also seemed to bypass this psychological state.DiscussionResults indicate a need for more sex-specific basic research into depression’s physiological impact, and on non-distress mechanisms linking life events to physiology. They also suggest that single-country studies may lead to flawed conclusions on the biological implications of life course factors.
       
  • Grandparenthood in China and Western Europe: An analysis of CHARLS and
           SHARE
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 16 November 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Jing Zhang, Tom Emery, Pearl Dykstra Grandparenthood is a fascinating research area that not only brings together three generations and multiple roles in different life domains, but also echoes social contexts across historical times and places. Comparative research on grandparenthood, however, rarely includes non-western countries. This article seeks to answer the question of how grandparenthood differs between Western Europe and China by using comparable representative surveys of older adults. We extend the literature in two ways by showing that: 1) compared to Western Europe, becoming a grandparent occurs earlier and is virtually universal in both Urban and Rural China – the probability of being a grandparent is over 80% for Chinese by the time they are 55, while the same cannot be said for Western Europeans until they are aged between 70 and 80; and 2) the role-overlaps with grandparenthood are different for older Chinese and Western Europeans. The probability of being a working grandparent in Rural China is about twice that in Western Europe, while the rate is similar to Western Europeans for Urban Chinese. Chinese grandparents are also more likely to live with their children than Western Europeans. Conversely, as all family transitions come earlier for Chinese but life expectancy is shorter, the probabilities that grandparenthood overlaps with widowhood and filial roles are similar to that in Western Europe. Taken together, this study provides an overarching picture of the characteristics of grandparenthood in different societies that are fundamental to the meaning, performance, and impact of grandparental roles and relevant to a better understanding of grandparenthood worldwide.

  • Is childhood intelligence associated with coexisting disadvantages in
           adulthood' Evidence from a Swedish cohort study
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 October 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Stefan Fors, Jenny Torssander, Ylva B. Almquist Intelligence has repeatedly been linked to a range of different outcomes, including education, labour market success and health. Lower intelligence is consistently associated with worse outcomes. In this study, we analyzed the associations between intelligence measured in childhood, and the risk of experiencing a range of different configurations of coexisting disadvantages in adulthood. We also examined the role of educational achievements in shaping the associations. The analyses are based on the Stockholm Birth Cohort, a data material that encompasses more than 14,000 individuals born in 1953, with follow up until 2008. Latent class analysis was used to identify four different outcome configurations characterized by varying levels of disadvantages, measured in terms of unemployment, social assistance recipiency, and mental health problems. The results show that those who scored lower on an intelligence test in childhood were at an increased risk of experiencing all configurations characterized by increased levels of disadvantages during adulthood. However, these associations were contingent on educational achievement. Once the models were adjusted for school marks and educational attainment, no association between intelligence and disadvantages remained. These findings highlight the importance of developing strategies to facilitate optimal educational opportunities for all children, at all levels of cognitive performance.
       
  • RETIREMENT COORDINATION IN OPPOSITE-SEX AND SAME-SEX MARRIED COUPLES:
           EVIDENCE FROM SWEDISH REGISTERS
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 October 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Linda Kridahl, Martin KolkABSTRACTThis study examines how married couples’ age differences and gender dynamics influence retirement coordination in Sweden. High-quality longitudinal administrative registers allow us to study the labor market outcomes of all marital couples in Sweden. Using regression analysis, we find that the likelihood of couples retiring close in time decreases as their age difference increases but that age differences have a similar effect on retirement coordination for couples with larger age differences. Additionally, retirement coordination is largely gender-neutral in opposite-sex couples with age differences regardless of whether the male spouse is older. Additionally, male same-sex couples retire closer in time than both opposite-sex couples and female same-sex couples. The definition of retirement coordination as the number of years between retirements contributes to the literature on couples’ retirement behavior and allows us to study the degree of retirement coordination among all couples, including those with larger age differences.
       
  • Holistic Analysis of the Life Course: Methodological Challenges and New
           Perspectives
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 October 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Raffaella Piccarreta, Matthias Studer We survey state-of-the-art approaches to study trajectories in their entirety, adopting a holistic perspective, and discuss their strengths and weaknesses. We begin by considering sequence analysis (SA), one of the most established holistic approaches. We discuss the inherent problems arising in SA, particularly in the study of the relationship between trajectories and covariates. We describe some recent developments combining SA and Event History Analysis, and illustrate how weakening the holistic perspective—focusing on sub-trajectories—might result in a more flexible analysis of life courses. We then move to some model-based approaches (included in the broad classes of multistate and of mixture latent Markov models) that further weaken the holistic perspective, assuming that the difficult task of predicting and explaining trajectories can be simplified by focusing on the collection of observed transitions.Our goal is twofold. On one hand, we aim to provide social scientists with indications for informed methodological choices and to emphasize issues that require consideration for proper application of the described approaches. On the other hand, by identifying relevant and open methodological challenges, we highlight and encourage promising directions for future research.
       
  • Beyond the cross-lagged panel model: Next-generation statistical tools for
           analyzing interdependencies across the life course
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 October 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Marcus Mund, Steffen Nestler For decades, researchers have employed the Cross-Lagged Panel Model (CLPM) to analyze the interactions and interdependencies of a wide variety of inner- or supra-individual variables across the life course. However, in the last years the CLPM has been criticized for its underlying assumptions and several alternative models have been proposed that allow to relax these assumptions. With the Random-Intercept CLPM, the Autoregressive Latent Trajectory Model with Structured Residuals, and the Dual Change Score Model, we describe three of the most prominent alternatives to the CLPM and provide an impression about how to interpret the results obtained with these models. To this end, we illustrate the use of the presented models with an empirical example on the interplay between self-esteem and relationship satisfaction. We provide R and Mplus scripts that might help life course researchers to use these novel and powerful alternatives to the CLPM in their own research.
       
  • What Autobiographical Narratives Tell Us About the Life Course.
           Contributions of Qualitative Sequential Analytical Methods
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 9 October 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Betina Hollstein The paper discusses the benefits of certain qualitative approaches to data collection and analysis for research into the life course. These methods of data collection (i.e., the extempore narrative interview by Schütze) and sequential analytical approaches of data analysis (i.e., narration analysis by Schütze and documentary analysis by Bohnsack and Nohl) provide unique insight that can address some of the current challenges and open questions of life course research. This is because the sequential analysis of autobiographical narrative interviews makes it possible to distinguish between reported and experienced life history and to reconstruct tacit knowledge and action orientations, which are partly unconscious. In particular, autobiographical extempore narrations offer unique avenues to understanding biographical decision-making and the layers of biographical experiences and planning, to investigating the question of how individuals link different spheres of life, and to exploring different types of agency and thus driving forces of a person’s life course. To illustrate the potential of these methods, data from a project on modes of living in the German middle class are presented that illuminate biographical decision-making in the transition to the labor market.
       
  • A Multi-Disciplinary Model of Life-Course Canalization and Agency
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 September 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Jutta Heckhausen, Marlis Buchmann This article integrates life-course sociological insights and perspectives with the conceptions of agency and individual motivation formulated as the motivational theory of life-span development. We use Waddington’s epigenetic landscape as a metaphor for how life courses are shaped jointly by societal structure and individual agency. Social structure imposes constraints and institutions provide the transitions and pathways that together constitute critical scaffolding for life-course timing and path dependency (“canalization”). The building blocks from developmental and motivational psychology as well as from life-course sociology are introduced first. Then we address the dynamic interplay of individual agent and society in terms of life-span timing and life-course canalization (i.e., path-dependency) effects. The proposed conceptual framework moves beyond previous accounts of agent-society interplay in two distinct ways. First, we develop a systematically organized set of specific phenomena of developmental canalization on the one hand, and of institutionalized or social-structure based canalization on the other. Secondly, we offer a discussion of a set of scenarios that show how these specific psychological and society-generated processes may play together to shape individuals’ life courses and life-span development.
       
  • A Cohort Comparison of Predictors of Young Adult Union Formation and
           Dissolution in the US
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 September 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Claire M. Kamp, Bohyun Jang, Anastasia R. Snyder The theory of the second demographic transition argues that as educated Americans began valuing self-actualization and individual autonomy, delays in union formation spread through the US. The accelerated adulthood theory suggests that socioeconomic disadvantage distinguishes young adulthood such that those with fewer resources have shorter, more informal (i.e. cohabitation) unions, and those with more resources delay but achieve marriage and have greater union stability. We use two large, nationally representative samples of young adults collected about twenty years apart, the National Longitudinal Surveys of Youth 1979 and 1997 cohorts to examine cohort differences in union formation and dissolution and test interaction effects in demographic and socioeconomic correlates. We found that the NLSY97 cohort 1) entered into unions earlier than the NLSY79 cohort, 2) entered direct marriage (marriage without premarital cohabitation) later than the NLSY79 cohort, and 3) entered cohabiting unions earlier than the NLSY79 cohort. A greater proportion of young adults in the NLSY97 cohort dissolved their first union between ages 16 and 30. We found that socioeconomically disadvantaged young adults had earlier unions by some indicators (e.g. lower maternal education) and later unions by other indicators (e.g. unemployment) in both cohorts. We also found that in both cohorts, socioeconomic disadvantage undermined union stability. We also found evidence for interaction effects; some indicators of socioeconomic disadvantage (e.g. income, employment, and maternal education) had exacerbated effects on union formation and stability in the NLSY97 as compared to the NLSY79 cohorts perhaps because inequality grew over the twenty years between cohorts.
       
  • Ill-Timed: The Effects of Timing of Chronic Illness Onset on Depressive
           Symptoms among Multiage Adults
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 September 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Eundria A. Hill-JosephABSTRACTFramed by a life course perspective and the stress process, this study examines how life stage at chronic illness onset contributes to mental health disparities among adults with particular attention to the moderating role of personal mastery. Using secondary data from waves 1-4 of the American Changing Lives survey, this study uses multilevel modeling analyses to examine if the life stage (early adulthood, midlife, and late life) in which an adult becomes ill is associated with his/her depressive symptoms across a 16-year period and how the relationship is moderated by mastery. The results confirm that becoming chronically ill early in the adult life course (before 36) is particularly detrimental to the mental health of adults when compared to illness onset at late life (65+), which is due in part to younger adults yielding less psychological protection from the mastery they possess than adults who become ill as older adults. Thus, this study’s findings support that life stage, like race, socioeconomic status and other individual contexts, differentially position people to experience the negative psychological effects of the stressor of chronic illness.
       
  • Grandparenting after divorce: variations across countries
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 September 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Zuzana Žilinčíková, Martin Kreidl We analyze the effect of grandparental divorce on the odds of providing grandparental childcare and investigate the variation of this effect across countries. The analysis is based on three-level hierarchical linear models, using data collected between 2004 and 2011 in 18 European countries as a part of the SHARE project. Being divorced is clearly associated with a significant reduction in the odds of providing any grandparental childcare in the past 12 months as well as in the odds of providing intensive (at least once a week) childcare. There is, however, significant variation in the divorce effect across countries. Looking at any grandparental childcare, we see that the negative effect of divorce is significantly weaker at higher divorce rates. The disruptive effect of divorce declines by almost 30 per cent when crude divorce rate increases by one standard deviation. We conclude that the level of conflict typically associated with divorce is lower when family disruption is more common, and its disruptive effect is weaker: intergenerational contact is thus preserved more often, and grandparental childcare provision is more common. Moreover, social institutions related to divorce and post-divorce arrangements may be more developed in countries with a higher incidence of divorce and thus they partially mitigate the negative effect of divorce. We do not confirm the same pattern when studying intensive grandparental childcare. Despite the low statistical significance, the trend seems to be the opposite: the effect of divorce becomes stronger with growing incidence of divorce. We attribute this latter trend to a complex re-organization of the lives of the divorcees that constrain their availability for intensive caregiving.
       
  • The life course in a migrating world: Hybrid scripts of ageing and
           imaginaries of care
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 September 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Bjarke Oxlund More and more people across the globe are ageing in countries and regions other than the one they were born in. The increased level of transnational migration has become a social fact that challenges scholars to go beyond models that understand ageing and the life course from a national or a mono-cultural perspective. One of the main themes or challenges that have come to the fore at the policy level is that of care. This is often embedded in a global “ageist discourse,” whereby the concerns about care services needed for ageing migrants add to the already negative understandings of an elder burden brought about by the longevity of the baby boom generation. At the same time, questions of care often become a critical site for the concrete negotiation of what it means to age well according the wide range of social norms and values represented in diverse migrant populations or so-called host societies. This underscores the need for the cross-fertilization of the conceptual frameworks of social science studies of ageing and migration with a view to care, since the combined explanatory power of life course studies and migration studies make it possible to grasp the multiplicity of experiences concerning ageing and the life course in the context of specific power relations and legal frameworks. This theoretical article argues that in a globalizing world, culturally informed scripts of ageing are taking on more and more hybrid forms, while imaginaries of care are rapidly changing as a consequence of this hybridity. In order to make sense of the nexus of ageing, migration and care these developments must be addressed in a theoretically informed vocabulary that pays due attention to the intermediary processes related to how intimate ageing lives are intertwined with globalization in an age of migration.
       
  • Long-Term Relationships between Adolescent Intense Work and Deviance: Are
           There Differences by Social Class'
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 28 August 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Gregory C. Rocheleau An abundance of research has examined relationships between work and delinquency in adolescence, yet few have considered if adolescent work is associated with long-term deviant outcomes. This is unfortunate as work may constitute an early exit of adolescence and lead youth down deviant pathways by limiting the development of social and human capital in school and family domains. This study uses data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) (N = 3,749) to examine relationships between intense adolescent work and several deviant outcomes in adulthood using logistic regression. This study also incorporates interactions to test for moderation by social class. Results find that those who consistently worked intense hours in adolescence report more binge drinking in young adulthood than others, and that this relationship is weaker for those from higher social class backgrounds.
       
  • Gender and mathematics: Pathways to mathematically intensive fields of
           study in Australia
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 July 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Helen Law Women in Australia have gone from being under-represented to being over-represented in university education, but they are still far less likely than men to engage in mathematically intensive science fields including engineering, information technology and the physical sciences. I aim to contribute to the literature by examining the extent to which secondary school educational experiences and occupational expectations explain the gender gap in the choice of a mathematically intensive university major. I used logistic regression models and the KHB method to analyse the data from the 2003 cohort of the Longitudinal Survey of Australian Youth. Overall, I found that about 28 percent of the gender gap could be explained by students’ expectations of a mathematically oriented career while in secondary school, self-assessed mathematical competence in adolescence and engagement in advanced mathematics and physical science subjects in the final year of secondary school. The results of the KHB method demonstrate that the expectation of a mathematically oriented career has the greatest potential to bridge the gender gap.
       
  • Less Trusting and Connected' Social Trust and Social Integration Among
           Young Adults During the Recession
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 July 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Jack K. Day, Richard A. Settersten The transition to adulthood became more precarious in the United States and many other countries during the Great Recession of the late 2000s. We investigate perceived social trust and social integration – and the relationship between the two – among young people during this period. We draw on longitudinal data from the U.S. Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) to examine social trust and social integration among young adults (aged 18 to 25; n = 728) before, during, and after the nadir of the recession. Cross-lagged models are estimated to assess the reciprocal relationship between a variety of concepts related to social trust and social integration among young adults at four time points: 2005; 2007; 2009; and 2011. Findings indicate that social trust and social integration fluctuated over time but surprisingly did not uniformly decrease during the economic recession. Rather, social trust was highest among young adults during the recession, and was especially predictive of feeling connected to a community and having greater confidence that one has something of value to contribute to society. Additionally, stronger feelings of self-worth were associated with higher social trust and greater confidence in society. Results highlight that investments in social trust and social integration may be mutually beneficial, and that social trust and social integration are robust and were not jeopardized as youth entered adulthood during a significant recession.
       
  • Smoking, education and the ability to predict own survival probabilities
    • Abstract: Publication date: September 2018Source: Advances in Life Course Research, Volume 37Author(s): Bruno Arpino, Valeria Bordone, Sergei Scherbov Subjective survival probabilities (SSPs) are a good predictor of mortality, go beyond the aggregate description of survival defined by life tables, and are important for individuals’ decision-making in later life. However, despite the well-known mortality differentials by education as well as by characteristics such as smoking, little investigation has focused on SSPs by population sub-groups defined as a combination of these two characteristics.We use data on individuals aged 50–89 from the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) carried out in the USA between 2000 and 2012 (N = 23,895). Respondents were asked to assess the probability to survive to a given target age according to their age at the time of the survey. We assess how individuals’ SSPs and estimated objective survival probabilities (OSPs) vary by education and smoking and calculate, for each respondent, the gap between them.Consistently with real mortality patterns, smokers report the lowest SSPs in each of the three considered education groups. When comparing SSPs and OSPs we find that all groups tend to underestimate survival. Within each education group, past smokers better predict their survival probability. Current smokers with low education show the highest probability to overestimate their survival.Smokers are aware of their lower life expectancy. Still, a considerable proportion of them overestimate their survival probabilities, independently of their level of education.
       
  • Positive self-concept predicts youth staying in school longer in India
    • Abstract: Publication date: September 2018Source: Advances in Life Course Research, Volume 37Author(s): Renee Ryberg Research based on youth in the United States and Europe has established the importance of noncognitive skills for successful transitions to adulthood. The influence of noncognitive skills may vary by social and economic contexts, though, and nine in ten youth worldwide live in developing countries where noncognitive skills have not been rigorously studied. I specifically examine the role that self-concept plays in predicting education/work status in the transition to adulthood among youth in Andhra Pradesh, India. Using data from the Young Lives study, I investigate the measurement properties of positive self-concept and use structural equation modeling to examine whether this competence in early adolescence (age 11–12) predicts whether youth (age 18–19) are in school, work, both, or are not currently in education, employment, or training (NEET). Findings suggest that positive self-concept is associated with youth staying in school rather than working, and young women staying in school rather than being NEET, and its effect size is comparable to those of cognitive skills. The present study contributes to the field’s understanding of a noncognitive skill, self-concept, in a new setting and points to the importance of future work investigating the role noncognitive skills play in the lives of young people in diverse settings, and the conditions under which these skills are influential.
       
  • Motherhood and mental well-being in Germany: Linking a longitudinal life
           course design and the gender perspective on motherhood
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 25 June 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Marco Giesselmann, Reinhard Schunck, Martina Hagen Based on considerations of societal mothering ideologies, qualitative gender studies suggest detrimental effects of motherhood on women’s mental well-being. However, numerous quantitative life course analyses find no such effect. This dissonance may originate in the measurement of well-being usually employed in longitudinal quantitative designs, which does not capture the dimensions of well-being identified as relevant in gender studies (i.e., stress, anxiety, depression, and social detraction). Using an indicator of well-being based on the Short Form 12 health questionnaire (SF-12), whose items correspond closely to these dimensions, this study integrates the gender perspective on maternal well-being in a longitudinal life course design. Using data on 1,885 mothers and a control group of 6,283 childless women from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP), longitudinal analyses reveal a significant and steady decrease in average maternal mental well-being after first childbirth. When contrasted with the development in a matched control group of childless women, a smaller, but still statistically significant decline is predicted. Thus, our results are consistent with arguments of a detrimental effect of motherhood.
       
  • Educational assortative mating and couples’ linked late-life
           employment trajectories
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 April 2018Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Mark Visser, Anette Eva Fasang In the context of population aging and growing numbers of older workers and older couples, this study examines how educational assortative mating earlier in life is associated with the division of paid work later in life between partners of opposite-sex couples in the Netherlands. We observe 20 years of linked partners’ employment trajectories, when the male partners were aged 45–65. This longitudinal and dyadic perspective enables us to examine long-term patterns in couples’ division of paid work, including the timing of retirement, beyond snapshots of the division of paid work between partners at specific ages. We consider labor supply and labor demand factors for older workers in connection to cumulative (dis)advantage over the life course and argue that educational assortative mating earlier in life reinforces social inequality between couples later in life. We innovatively apply multichannel sequence and cluster analysis using retrospective data from four waves of the Family Survey Dutch Population (FSDP) for the 1916–1957 birth cohorts. Findings support a typology of five groups of older couples: 1) high-status dual-earners, 2) low-status dual-earners, 3) high-status male breadwinners, 4) low-status male breadwinners and 5) dual-jobless/disabled couples. The male breadwinner clusters are more prevalent overall (53%), but even among these relatively old birth cohorts, a substantial share of couples is in a long-term, stable dual-earner arrangement later in life (41%). The majority of dual-earner couples consists of two high-status earners (24%). Multinomial logistic regression analysis supports that educational assortative mating earlier in life is associated with a polarization into resource-rich high-status dual-earners and resource-poor low-status male breadwinner couples later in life. We conclude that educational assortative mating sets in processes of cumulative (dis)advantage over the life course that leave an enduring imprint on couples’ late-life employment trajectories.
