Childbearing and Marriage: Investigating the Importance of Context for Meaning-Making of First-Time Marriage
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences.
2019 (English)In: Marriage and Family Review, ISSN 0149-4929, E-ISSN 1540-9635, Vol. 55, no 1, p. 38-58Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Previous research reveals that the temporal ordering of childbearing and marriage can have an impact on the meaning of first-time marriage. This article aims to obtain a deeper understanding of meaning-making of first-time marriage in relation to childbearing. Narrative interviews with 16 brides and grooms in 8 couples in Sweden were conducted. The material was analyzed in relation to the temporal ordering of childbearing and marriage. The study reveals that the construction of meaning of marriage does not only relate to the temporal context. Social factors such as social class or family formation might also be relevant for how meaning is constructed. This article contributes to a deeper understanding of meaning-making as a relational process constructed within particular contexts.
