Abstract:
Family and work are two important areas of adult life. However, these two domains are not always compatible, and the degree to which these roles are at conflict influences numerous spheres of individuals’ and couples’ lives. Work-life conflict is especially evident among migrants, as the separation from social networks within the home country makes the migrant couples’ lives harder. This article explores the hypothesis that the means of coping with work-life conflict and resultant stress differ between migrant couples and couples living in their home country.
