In this dissertation we examined which aspects of the interparental relationship can be distinguished and whether these aspects and children's problem behavior affect each other over time. In addition, we examined why the interparental relationship and children's problem behavior are associated, whether certain children are more susceptible for aspects of the interparental relationship than others, and if the quality of the interparental relationship explains associations between the individual characteristics of mothers and fathers and their own and their partners' parenting behavior.
