This study examined demographic factors, marital status, and racial perspectives with Black couples. Spouses were older, bad fewer mixed racial attitudes, and more trust than unmarried partners. Husbands had higher socioeconomic statuses, and wives had fewer anti-Black attitudes than unmarried partners. After controlling other demographic predictors, men's marital status did not predict their racial perspectives, but women's married status predicted significantly fewer anti-Black and mixed attitudes. After controlling demographic and marital statuses, anti-Black perspectives generally predicted significant variance in couple outcomes. Maritalstatus and racial perspectives did not interact to predict couple outcomes. These findings suggest that gender differences in the association between Blacks' racial views and their couple relationships relate to marital status for women and SES formen.
