Formatted Abstract/Summary
 "This paper aims to obtain a better understanding of marriage breakdown in the Australian context, with a particular focus on gender differences in the social correlates of marriage breakdown. The report analyses retrospective data from all persons who were currently or had been previously married at Wave 1 of the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey (2001). The findings are grouped into three main themes: social characteristics are important for understanding marriage breakdown; women are more likely to initiate separation than men; gender differences in the decision to separate or remain married."--FaHCSIA Website.
