Abstract

The dependence of married women upon men for their achievement of social status is examined. A status borrowing model is contrasted to an independent status model. Data from a 1972 national survey indicate that the former model fits better than the latter. Both husbands and wives appear to pay rather little attention to the attainments of wives when evaluating their own social status. However, a sharing model is not totally ruled out.
