Perceived Stress and Resilience among Early Married Home-makers and Working Women
Keywords:Early marriage, Employment Status, Perceived Stress, Resilience
AbstractThe common tradition of women getting married in their early ages of 18-21 is changing in the present days, but this change cannot be considered as an abrupt one. The life conditions of early married women have always been part of discussions and academic studies and the present study also tries to tap on this significant population. The agenda of the present-day struggles of empowerment are around financial autonomy or economic stability of women, and keeping this concern in mind, the present study tries to understand the impact of having an occupation among women who married in an early age. The major variables of concern were the Perceived stress of women and their Brief resilience and the present study revealed that there isn’t any significant difference in the variables of concern among early married women who were employed and unemployed. The study was conducted on a sample of 60 women with equal proportion of working and non-working women. The tools used for the study were Perceived Stress Scale by Cohen and Mermeistein (1983) and Brief Resilience Scale by Smith et. al. (2008). The data was statistically analysed to reach the conclusion. Major limitations of the study and the possible future orientations have been discussed further in the research paper.
