Abstract
The husband-wife dyad is an important adoption unit in family planning. The dynamics of the interaction process between husband and wife, the presence or absence of conflict, feedback, consultation, consensus, and other aspects of decision-making have been examined by various researchers who conclude that the existence of a freer flow of communication between the husband-wife dyad and equalitarianism (where the wife shares equal power in decision-making) have positive correlations with lower fertility rates-and a smaller family size norm. The present report reviews selected literature on husband-wife interaction and its effects on the adoption of family planning.
