A Narrative Study of Male Accompanying Partners: Adaptation to a Nontraditional Role in Dyadic Partnerships

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



Abstract:

Although the traditional conceptual paradigm of an accompanying spouse (trailing partner) emanates from a predominantly female perspective, the emerging trend is now shifting to include men functioning in that role. With the changing face of the American workforce due to the increased entry of women, a postmodern family structure has emerged as the role of men as breadwinners-in-chief in the traditional nuclear family has been eroded and women’s desire to be caregivers has diminished.
The traditional scenario of wives trailing their husbands to new geographical locations in connection with employment, and the perspectives of the affected women are replete. However, studies on the emergence of the contemporary male accompanying partner phenomenon from the perspectives of men are grossly under-researched. This study will seek to add a new dimension to the dialogue by exploring and analyzing the lived experiences of male accompanying partners, the coping strategies they employ, and the influence of gendered expectations as they attempt to adapt to a nontraditional reversal of roles. Related theories examined in the literature are the Theory of Adaptation and Coping Congruence Theory.
