This is unquestionably one of the most difficult adjustments to marriage, and it is the one most likely to lead to marital discord and unhappiness if it is not satisfactorily achieved.

  • Just as the ever-increasing number of vocational opportunities makes vocational selection and adjustment difficult, so does the ever-increasing number of family patterns make marital adjustment difficult.

    Sex-role adjustments during early adulthood are extremely difficult. Long before adolescence is over, boys and girls are well aware of the approved adult sex roles but this does not necessarily lead to acceptance.

    Because of the relatively undeveloped state of the most important sense organs – the eyes and the ears – one could not logically expect newborn infants to be keenly aware of what goes on around them. Their awareness is more likely to be “one great blooming, buzzing confusion,” as James has described it.

    Sensitivities of the Infant

    The best criterion that can be used to determine the presence or absence of sensory capacity is the motor response to sensory stimuli that would normally arise when these sense organs are stimulated. However, it is often difficult to tell whether a motor response is made to a stimulus or whether the reaction is a part ...
