Dual-Career Couples: Compromises and Consequences by Karen Parrish Baker, Gamma Alpha

Karen Parrish Baher is a Ph.D. candida te at The Ohio Stale University and faculty fellow at the West Virginia Graduate College. H er knowledge of dual-career issues sterns from both scholarly study and personal experience. As half of a dual-career couple, she has experienced worhing for the same employer as her husband, child care f or her son and newborn daughter, long distance commuting, and relocation. H er dissertation stu dy, which she anticipates completing this year, examines how dual-career lifestyles affect individuals ' career development. THE ANCHOR/ Spring 1994

What is a Dual-Career Couple? Dual-career couple means spouses or relational partners who pw ue individual careers willie maintaining their furnilies. Histmically, work and furnily were viewed as two separate worlds. However, changing values among men who want to be more involved in furnily life, and wo men who want an d n eed to work, has meant that the demands of building and maintaining careers often must be balan ced with the compe ting responsibilities of sustaining furnilies. Acco rdin g to oc io log i t rn a Se kara n ; the balan cing of work an d fa m ily life call s for a reord ering of ro les, prio rities and sch edule tha t run counte r to the traditio n al patte rns of ge nde r-based b e h avior and 5

the perso nn el policies of most organiz ation s. She p o ints out that wo rk and family live overlap emotionally, psychologically and structura ll y. Such over lap suggests a symbiotic na ture of work a nd family in which eac h impacts the other. Issu es which imp act th e family range from dependent care conce rn s, h ea lth a nd oth er in ura n ce ben efi ts, com pe nsation, job fl exibility, travel requirements, and family leave ava il a bili ty. The appli cabili ty a nd inte nsity th at any o ne of these issu es have for a coupl e is dependent upon the life stage of their relationship a nd fam il y, and the developme nt of each member's career. Th e availabili ty of upport rvices to meet du al-career coup le ' fam ily needs, such as adequate day care, fl ex ibl e work sch edul es, a nd e mpl oyee be nefit packages in creasin g ly are beco min g imp ortant as more individu als va lue greater bala n ce between work a nd fami ly responsibilities. Ch angin g value and greater acce pta nce of family as bein g as impo rtant as work is resulting in more people wanting jobs which e n a bl e th em to p e nd more time with th eir fami lies and till have successfu l professional live . The Employing Organization Dual-caree r issue wi thin employing organ izations must be considered o n two leve ls : individual career and institutions. At the career leve l, the career decisions made a nd their impact on career progress and momentum are particul a rly complicated for dual-career couples because two parallel careers must be considered. Differences in the n ature of the careers dictate the values and working conditions individuals must fulfill. Frequent travel, long hours, entertaining clients or co-workers, working odd hours, can affect the relationship one h a with o n e 's family. Failure to adh ere to one's chosen career alue can have negative consequ e n ce for one' earning potential, promotions and other perquisites whi ch signify success within a career. Couples' careers will occ ur in organizations that may have divergent polici and procedur whi h differentiaJiy impact dual-car e r couple memb r . oordinating schedu l 6

Competing work re ponsibilitie and the inability to be in two different place at the arne time can have n egative consequence for an mployee' family as well as her chances for career advancement should she elect not to appear at work-related function too often.

We r cently had reunited our family aFter the three- year commuter re lati o n hip and had weathere<} a period of family readjustments. o, arly on we decided any reloca 路on would have to include the family moving together. We also con iclered whether the re was, or might be, an appropria position for the accompanying p Qu e. Although both salaries were irnilar given th e local co ts of liv ~ng , whether th accompanying po111 e could be employed in a comparaqle or better po ition than the one fue or he wa leaving was an importa t i ue for u a we considered our family ' economic well-being.

career a well needed boo t while th e part-time teaching position would make it easier for me to handl e our growing family and complete my dissertation. The immediate consequen ce of our d ecision were both positive and negative. On the negative side, my goal of becoming a full-time college faculty member would have to be delayed. On the positive side, m husband will gain additional experience wh ich will h e lp him to a dvance in his career. Even if I am unable to ecw路e a full-time, tenuretrack po ition in our present locat ion after comp letin g my dissertation , there is the potential for part-time teach ing and independent research. Both experiences would increase my academic value when seeking a future faculty position. And , since my hu band and I desire career advanceme nt in higher educatio n , we may h ave to relocate in order to be promoted; the "move-on to move-up" requirement i typical in many o ther work setting . Thus, our dual-career relation hip ha re ulted in a number of compromises which have reciprocal consequences for our individual car er as well a our family.

Managing Dual-Career Lifestyles Dual-career li festyles are complex and offer potentially positive and negative outcomes. Even when one person career takes the lead, the other perso n s career conti ues to play a role in th e decisionmaking process. Anti c ipating work-fam il ' conflicts, doing strategic planning, and negotiating goss ibl e respo nses bas e d upon probable long and short term consequences to each career and one's fa mily, are key components to reso lvin g eme rgen t dual-career issues. To maintain family and sustain two parallel careers take coo p eration, understanding and support among all involved. According to reports re ce ntly published by the Hudson Institute and the National Research Council, employers are losing valua ble workers due o conflicts with th eir spouses' occupation,s, in part, because of incompat~ble job lo cations, goals a庐.d other W@rk/ family adjustment problems. Employers THE ANCHOR / Spring 1994

often suffer from the loss of good employee who elect to relocate. Studies suggest that permitting employees some choice and co ntrol over th eir work schedule and benefit would reduce the poss ibl e n egative consequen e (including ab enteeism and tard,iness) of combining work and fam~ly responsibilities. Other tudies find that dual-career co uples who ar e pleased with the ir eraployment are less likely to leave, lessening employee attrition as well as recruitment, replacement and retraining costs. Employers ca n increase their chances of recr:ui ~ing and retaining dual-career workers by assuring that their organization does what it can to reduce the incidence of such conflicts. Careful, snrategic and proactive planning to provide work environments which are supportive to employees with families, are solid investments for organizations concerned about anticipated work force shortages for educated and highly skilled employees. For those in or who will b e in dual-career relationships, the keys for successful dual-career coupling lie in the compromises and flexible handling of the consequences their lifestyle choices may have on caree rs and vice versa. The mo t diffioult time for dual-career couples are caree r transitions which necessitate relocation sin ce an y d ecis ion m ade will h ave co n sequences 拢or two careers as well as the fami\y. Honest communi cation between partners about each other's personal and professional goals, being aware of the pote nti a l co n sequences which come from each individual ' s caree r d ec isio n s, an d pre plannin g based upon potential scenarios are good strategies to improve success in dual-career relationships. Career d ec isio ns should be analyzed by weighing the advantage s a nd disadvantages to eac h member of the coupl e as well as the family based o n both short and long term co nsiderations. Caree r advan cem ent opportunities for the accompanying partner as well as financial gain and stabili ty often are

Relocation Because relocation tends to be one of the most traumatic concerns for dual-career couples and their families, they should discuss what is important to tJ1em before they are faced with a relocation decision. Will you or yo ur parmer take turns or will you assess career opportunities individually in light of me benefits and disadvantages for you bom at the time? What geographic locations could best support bom careers? Would working for the same employer be a viable option for both of you? Will you consider a commuter relationship and under what conditions? If the commuter option is not right for you, how will you go about making career decisions? Whose career will take precedence and under what circumstances? When you are anticipating a career-related relocation , will you conduct separate or joined job searches? Separate searches mean you conduct the search without mentioning yo ur partner to potential employers. Since employers cannot ask about yo ur marital status in an interview, this strategy is best employed when one believes he or she has a better chance of getting the position if the employer does not know about yo ur dual-career status. However, with this su路ategy, difficulty may arise if yo ur partner cannot find an appropriate position in that geographic area. Ajoinec\ search is a good choice if you have decided mat no relocation will occur unless botJ1 of you find appropriate positions. This second approach bears greater risk because yo u lose control over when or if to let potential employe rs know you have a partner with a career, and can open you to judgments about your dual-career lifestyle which may hurt- or help -your employment chances. With either approach , me timing of your searches can be complicated since synchronization of me searches is beyond your control. Because positions become available at differe nt times and the length of time to fill them can vary, timing a relocation may mean mat a decision to accept or reject a job offer may have to be made before you know if your parmer will receive an offer for a promising but pending position. vVhen couples are considering positions geographically separate from the ower, me decision to accept one offer often results in the accompanying parmer withdrawing from his or her search. -K.P.B .


Dual-Career Couple Diversity Contrary to popular belief, not all dual-career couples are the same. While there may be similarities be~een couples, there are significant differences which reflect a diversity, of which most people are unaware. Dual-career couples' relationships ~enerally fall into three configurations: conventional , contemporary and unconventional. Conventional couples most resemble the traditional male-dominated family structure. For a majority of conventional couples, the female's career is secondary to taking time off to have and rear children. In conventional couples, the male partner usuall y has worked more years and therefore earns more money due, in part, to more continuous work experience. Contemporary couples represent those who are at similar career level . Typically they are close in age because they met in college, but increasingly, such couples meet through work. Contemporary dual-career cou~le~' vocational stages generally are s1milar, although it is not uncommon for a male partner's career to progress more quickly over time. Finally, there are the unconventional couples, for example, older woman, younger man; same-sex couple ; commuting couples to advance the female 's career (traditionally mm路e acceptable if to promote the male's career); women whose careers are more visible and/ or successful than their partners ' ; and house-husbands with parmers working outside the home. The potential compromises and consequences of dual-career relationships occur based upon an interaction between different circumstantial levels:_interpersonal, familial and organizauonal. The interpersonal level is the relationship between two or more individuals. In the case of dual-career couples, referring to interpersonal circumstances reflects the type of relauonsl11p the couple has , their relationship development (new versus established , early versus late adulthood, etc.) and the interaction and interr~lat.ionship between their personal 1ssues. Personal issues refer to an individual's adult development. Ac~ording to aduh development theonsts, developmental issues and concerns impact the way in which one experiences personal i sues. The impor~ance ~ou place on your personal 1 sues IS a function of where you, as an adult, are developmentall . For example, traditional-age (18-22


year old) collegians usually have different personal concerns from more mature women who have graduated because younger women developmentally are in a different place than more experienced women. 1ore experienced women already have been through, and hopefully learned from , the types of experience the collegians have yet to encounter. The second level is familial a nd refers to the family. Family relationsl~ip typically progres throuah predictable tage on two level : marital

Couples who desire children must carefully con ider childbirth m路 adoption's timing ramifications for t~eir re pective career . This i espeCially true for women , who continue to bear primary responsibility for rearing children. The third level is organizational or institutional. It con i ts of the relationships developed as a function of thetype of work one does (one's professiOn) as well as the place in which ~me works. Thus. even if couples are 111 the same profession, their work may diffe_r greatly based upon the type of orgamzauon for which they work. Conversely, such couple may do the s~me job functions despite working in d1fferent types of organizations.

Louise Glade Bohlen, 1891-1993 'To become national," said Mrs. Lyman to a special committee meeting at the Huron Hotel in Ypsilanti, Michigan in June 1925, "we need five activ.e collegiate chapters, a national convention, and a national magazine. I want you to meet Louise Glade Bo~le~, who will edit our magazine." That was the begmmng of our long friendship. During the five months prior to our first conve?tion in November 1925, Louise prepared the first Issue of The Anchor of Alpha Sigma Tau, which contains and preserves for us the histories of the collegiate and alumnae chapters established from 1899 to 1925. Although Louise was very capable, she was unassuming, always putting the sorority ahead of herself. Her introduction on page 9 of the first issue of The Anchor was as one of three "Assistant Editors". There was no mention of the fact that Louise did all the work. At that first Convention, she was elected Editor and was re-elected at the 1927 Convention. Mter editing our magazine during those tenuous, formative years of nationalization, she resigned after the birth of her son in October 1928. Although life took us in different directions, our paths crossed occasionally, and we remained friends through the years. When I received notification of her death last October, I thought about those 68 years since June 1925, remembering a sorority sister, beautiful in soul and appearance, faithful to whatever duty called her. As her son said, she was one of the "pioneers" of our national organization. -Carrie Washburne Staehle

Elderhosteling at Pine Mountain by Rose Marie Schmidt, Theta When I heard that an Elderhostel wou ld be held at Pin e Mounta in prior to the National Founda ti o n mee ting there last fall , it see med a perfect opportunity to really ge t to know Pin e Mountain Se ttl e m e nt School and its program . Elderh ostel is "a non-profit educational o rganization offer (ing) in expen sive, h ortterm academic programs hosted by education al institution s around th e world. " Individuals 60 years of age and olde r are eligible . Th e Eld e rhoste l a t Pin e Mo untain would b e som e thin g n ew to study, some thing n ew to try. So I recruited a fri e nd to j oin m e a nd we e nrolled. The drive fro m De tro it to London , Ke ntu cky a lo n g I-7 5 was very fa mili ar to me: I'd th ought of Pine Moun tain each time I p assed . This tim e I turn ed onto the Dani el Boone Parkway and was in unfamilia r te rrito ry . At H yd e n , I fo llowed 421 toward H arla n, th e n 221 , wh e re I was to "go p a t a coal wash , a nd th e e ntran ce to th e sch ool is a mil e b eyo nd th a t. " (Coal was h ? Fo r a n oldster broug ht up in Detro it, this was a n ew te rm !) I assum e d co rr ec tl y th a t I'd r ecog ni ze a pl ace whe re o n e wa h e d coal, a nd soo n drove into th e e ntr a n ce m a rk e d "Pine Moun tain Se ttle m e nt Sch ool, Est. 1913- Welco me". Our e ig htee n m e mb ers ca m e from nin e states. At orien tati o n, we introdu ced o ur elve . It was h e re th a t o th e r Elderh ostelers learn ed of m y interest in Pine Moun tain, Alph a Sigma Tau 's support of the p rogram and our co ntributi on to the re novation of Big Log. We m e t Paul H ayes, Direc tor of Pin e Mounta in Se ttlem e nt Scho ol , a nd h e was qui ck to ask if I wante d to see Big Log. "I think you ' ll b e pl ease d with wh a t we 've done," he said, and I was. Mainstay o f a n y Eld e rh os te l is the staff conducting it a nd th e program organi zation. We so o n cam e to admire the skill , kn owl ed ge, o rganization , a nd d edi ca tion of Be n Begley, Direc tor of Enviro nm e ntal Education , aturalist, and Skills Instructor, and his wife Pat Beg ley, THE ANCHOR/ Spring 1994

On th e fir st flo o r , we did our wo o dwo rk ; carving, po lishing, and stainin g magnoli a blossom pap erwe ig hts, sm oo th ce d a r le tte r ope n e rs, and refrige ra tor magn e ts we r e a m o n g th e man y pr oj ec ts ava il a bl e. We left Pin e Mountain kn owin g skill s we never thought we h ad. Co rn shuck dolls a nd fl owe rs looked easy but proved h arde r tha n expected . U ing th e m a n y diffe re nt lo om s that Pat and Be n Begley had already pre pa red for us was really ch allen ging. Even though they did the hard wo rk of threading the looms and setting the m up, we found tha t following the pattern by manipulating th e foot pedals and throwing the shuttle was slow wo rk a t first. Errors we r e easy to de tect and taking out rows beca m e p art of th e task. Diffe r e nt loo ms let everyo n e ch oose th e d egr ee of di ffi culty with whi c h th ey were comfortable . Afton Garrison e ntertained us with stories of th e early se ttl e rs in th e a rea a nd how th ey ad a pted th eir lives to th e e nviro nme nt. Ben Begley was maste r of th e pla nt h o use, ide ntifyin g medi cin al plan ts which are n ow finding new applicatio ns by pharmaceutical h ouses. J am es Good e sh owed his d ocume ntary on coa l ca mps a nd add ed his first-hand experie nce. It gave us a diffe re nt vi ew of the "compa ny store" image of company towns.

Th e fi e ld trips add e d different learnin g e xp e ri e n ces; visitin g th e Creech cabin resto red with its original furni shin gs, go ing to the India n cave acros the road a nd seeing the spo ts wh e re re li cs a re be in g excava ted , see ing a wo rking strip min e a nd th e recl a ma tio n effor ts be ing m a d e, l oo kin g for bi r d s wh ose sig hts we re Ies visibl e th a n th e ir sounds, a nd climbing th e hill s on th e tra il s in the forest to id e ntify th e wildfl owe rs, pla n ts, a nd tree tha t we h ad n ever seen b efore.

Seve ral eve nin gs, we wa lked uphill to th e c h a p e l a nd in th e peace a nd beau ty of this se tting listened to Mr. Rogers play th e o rgan . It was in the ch ap el th at I really felt a kinship to Pine Mountain . T h e tribute to Eth el Delo ng Zande, one of th e founde rs of Pine Mo un tain , e nded in the verse wi th which we are all familiar . . . the one th at begi n "wh atsoever things are tru e ... ".
