How Does Marital Dynamics Influence Psychological well-being in Farm-Families?

  • Grace Oluseyi Sokoya


The study examined the influence of marital dynamics on the psychological wellbeing of farm-families in Ogun-state Nigeria. Research participants included spouses in twenty-six families drawn from five farming communities in the state. The uniqueness of the study is its feminist methodological approach, which emphasizes the inclusion of men's and women's views and perceptions, as opposed to a polarized view of men exclusively as the oppressors and perpetrators of female subordination. Findings of the study provide useful information for gender analysis and development of gender-sensitive and gender-specific interventions needed for the enhancement of the psychological wellbeing of farm-families.
