Second, mother`s marital satisfaction was the most significant variable in predicting father involvement, and mother`s marital conflict was the most significant one in predicting maternal parenting stress. Third, the significance and numbers of variables which were impacted upon maternal parenting stress and father involvement varied according to income groups.
