Abstract

Dyadic consensus was found to be significantly and positively related to realistic stan dard setting in planning for wives and husbands in this low‐income sample. Locus of control, the antecedent variable, was positively and significantly related to dyadic consensus for both husbands and wives. The third significant relationship for wives and husbands was between annual income and locus of control. Education was found to have a significant, positive relationship with the assessment of planning for husbands, but not for wives. This finding represents a point of departure between the prediction models for wives and husbands. 1982 American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences
