Summary
In this study, I investigated normative beliefs regarding filial obligations toward older divorced parents and stepparents. Eight hundred and twenty-four African American and non-Hispanic White adults responded to a multiple segment factorial survey portraying possible obligations of an adult child to assist an older (step)parent. Several conclusions were drawn: (a) regardless of ethnicity, obligations to parents are perceived to be greater than those to stepparents; (b) African Americans believe to a greater extent than non-Hispanic Whites that stepparents should be helped; (c) perceived obligations to help an older (step)parent are greater when relationships are good than when they are poor; (d) quality of the relationship has a greater impact on perceptions of filial obligations when the older adult is the stepparent than when it is a genetic parent. Implications for filial responsibility laws are discussed
