This study examines how the work trajectories of women and men after childbirth and their subjective evaluation influence conjugal love. Data are drawn from the study, «Social Stratification, Cohesion and Conflict in Contemporary Families» (Widmer et al., 2003). The results show that an interruption of labour force participation increases the risk of feeling less in love for women, especially if the interruption is perceived as a sacrifice. Women’s feelings of love also depend on the way in which their male partners consider their own work trajectories. Men’s feelings of love are much less sensitive to their own and their partners’ work trajectories. The results are discussed within the life course perspective.
Keywords: Marital Satisfaction, Intimacy, Work, Life Course.
