Example text

S e c o n d , b e c a u s e fertility tends to o c c u r within a c o m p a r a t i v e l y short time s p a n , its p o s t p o n e m e n t increases t h e likelihood that o t h e r m e m b e r s of t h e c o u p l e ' s c o h o r t will h a v e c o m p l e t e d their childbearing. T o give birth at a later age implies a set of constraints o v e r an e x t e n d e d portion of the c o u p l e ' s married life during which t h e y will b e " o u t of p h a s e " with their age p e e r s . While t h e couple goes t h r o u g h the progression of childrearing p h a s e s from intensive infant care to coping with t e e n a g e r s , at each p h a s e m e m b e r s of their birth cohort will b e in successive p h a s e s .

T h e dependent variable is intended fertility in the s e c o n d marriage, which is t h e sum of the n u m b e r of wanted children b o r n in t h e second marriage plus the additional n u m b e r of children intended.

F Age and the Termination of Childbearing In examining the cross-sectional relationship b e t w e e n age and fertility intentions, we are c o n c e r n e d with the decision to terminate childbearing, and the m e a s u r e of t h e d e p e n d e n t variable u s e d is w h e t h e r or not the res p o n d e n t intends to h a v e m o r e c h i l d r e n . T h e sample has b e e n restricted to currently married w o m e n w h o are without k n o w n or s u s p e c t e d fecundity p r o b l e m s .
