Marriage and earnings
An empirical investigation of the relationship between marriage and wages, arguing that marriage signals certain unobservable individual characteristics - including ability, honesty, loyalty, dependability, and determination - which are valued by employers, and that failure to control for the correlation of the fixed effects with marriage leads to an upward bias in the marital status coefficient.
