Parents choose a mate based on their own values, but this process has a significant impact on their choice.
Math.com explains how.
If you are looking for a mate, you should also consider whether you can afford to put your own values ahead of others, says Professor Daniela Rubens from the University of Cambridge’s Department of Mathematics.
Parents choose the same mate for the same reasons every couple does, and this choice can affect their relationship.
Rubens and her colleagues used a mathematical model to study the relationship between parent-offspring relationship and relationship satisfaction.
The researchers analysed data from more than 600 Australian couples from the 2015 census.
They then analysed the relationships of all the couples who had not yet reached the age of 25 years old and found that the most important factors for parents to consider were their income and their children’s education.
“Parents often say that when they marry, they want to make a life together and this may be true for some couples,” says Rubens.
If the parents have a lot of money, then they are probably not good parents. “
If the parents are poor, it is because they have no money and the children have no future.
If the parents have a lot of money, then they are probably not good parents.
But the other factor is the quality of the parent-child relationship, which in some cases is more important than the income.”
Rubens says the researchers found that people with parents who were more affluent were more satisfied with their relationships.
This finding has implications for how we think about the future, especially as we age.
Ruben says parents are able to influence the choices of their children but also how their children will respond to their parents.
“In some cases, their children may have a strong parental investment in them,” she says.
“For example, if the parents do not have children of their own, then their children might be more likely to trust their parents, and it may be harder for them to reject their parents.”
Ruben explains that children may also develop in a different way if parents feel more connected to their own child, or if they feel more in touch with the child than with their parents are.
“The importance of having a relationship with your own children is that it may have positive influences on the development of the child,” she explains.
“We know that the relationship with a parent can influence the child’s personality.
The parents may feel closer with their child and the child might feel closer to the parent.”
Parents with low income parents The study also found that parents who have low incomes were more likely than their more affluent counterparts to be satisfied with the relationship they had with their partner.
However, this finding had a major effect on how parents responded to the partner’s relationship with their children.
“This is because low-income parents are more likely that the partner is not as supportive of their interests and the partner may also feel less connected to the child.
In addition, the parent’s economic status may have an impact on how the parent will treat the child.”
Parents of less educated parents A second analysis of the data found that less educated people were more willing to have a relationship when it came to their partners, and they were also less likely to have an emotional attachment with their partners.
“When you look at these relationships, the most interesting thing that you see is the extent to which they are dependent on each other,” says Professor Rubens, “the partner’s interests and values and the parents’ values and values.”
Rubins says that although it may seem odd for an older couple to choose to have fewer children, this may actually be a good thing.
“It’s a way of keeping them young so they don’t have to work and support themselves, and the other partner’s time to spend with their family,” she notes.
“As you get older, this relationship becomes more important.
The partner will need more time with their own family and children.
And they will want to spend more time together, too.”
Rubs says that it is also possible that the more stable relationship between the parents and the partners can be maintained if parents with less education are more involved with their kids.
“They may spend more hours with their son or daughter.
Or the partner might be a bit more involved in childcare,” she adds.
Rubs is currently looking at data from a broader population, including couples with children in different education levels.
She hopes to study whether these patterns hold for all parents and whether this might explain why more educated couples are less likely than more impoverished ones to have children.
