This research suggests that parents of Chinese and American preschoolers differ in marital conflict, ambivalence, and relationship maintenance attitudes but not in marital love. Parents' marital health is a good predictor for preschoolers' physiological reactivity under stressful circumstances even when controlling for other theoretically-linked factors (such as parent-reported child reactivity).
