Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the degree of similarity or differences between the attitudes of high school and college females toward family life and children.

Data for this study were collected by administering a standardized questionnaire with 35 items to both groups of students. The students' responses were evaluated and each question analyzed separately.

The findings of this study indicate that the responses of the college sample were more realistic than for the high school sample. Also the high school sample appeared to have more glamorous expectations of marriage than did the college sample.
