The purpose of the study was to compare the anticipations of the domestic marital role of single American and Chinese college students. The respondents consisted of 158 Utah State University students, 88 male and 70 female; and 135 Tunghai University students, 58 male and 77 female.
A questionnaire was devised to obtain their attitudinal responses, using the F test. The critical level was 0 . 05. The findings seemed to indicate that students of both sexes and nationalities tended to define marital roles in the area of domestic responsibilities similarly. In the majority of cases anticipated role for the husband was that of breadwinner and for the wife that of homemaker though no responsibility was considered as belonging to the wife alone, or the husband alone.
