This paper focuses on the gendered exchanges and coping strategies used by these married working-class men and women to get a college education and keep their marriages intact during the process. First I discuss the data- gathering methods used for this study and the characteristics of the sample. Next, I examine the concerns of students and their spouses with juggling school, work and family responsibilities. I then describe coping strategies based on role switching and sharing used by these couples and their satisfaction with their new roles. I conclude with a discussion of the meaning of these findings for future class, family and gender research.
