Marriage and Desistance Among an Urban African American Cohort

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A growing amount of research shows that marriage has a strong impact on criminal offending, specifically desistance from offending. However, several populations remain understudied, such as African Americans and women, who may not experience the same effects from marriage as their white and male counterparts. To address the generalizablity of the “marriage effect,” this research draws on the Woodlawn sample, an epidemiologically-defined community cohort of African-American inner-city males and females who have been followed from childhood through adulthood (first grade, age 16, age 32, and age 42). Using interview data and official criminal history data, the marital and offending trajectories are examined to test the impact of marriage on criminal offending over the life course among these urban African Americans. Theories such as Sampson and Laub's age-graded theory of informal social control will be assessed in light of the findings.
