" 'These Boots Are Made for Walking' ": A Reply
AbstractErik Craft's comment on our 2000 article takes up a minor point, the impact of no-fault divorce on the gender of the spouse filing for divorce. In the original article, we related the gender of the filing to rent exploitation during marriage, rent appropriation through divorce, and particularly child custody. We tested the hypotheses we generated using a sample of more than 46,000 divorce decrees from the only four states collecting all the information we needed. The type of divorce ground was only a control variable, and not a strong one. We argue that Craft's comment misses our essential point. Copyright 2002, Oxford University Press.
