Volume Offers
New Ideas
on Evolution

Tel Aviu, California Researchers
Studying Life-Long Marriages

In "The Monkey Puzzle"
(Pantheon), John Gribbin
and Jeremy Cherfas offer
some new arguments on the
theory of evolution.
The authors claim that
men and apes evolved from
a common ancestor not 20
million years ago, as
theorized by Charles Dar-
win, but only five million
years ago. Gribbin and
Cherfas set for the proposi-
tion that man and his
closest relatives, the gorilla
and chimpanzee, differ
genetically by only one per-
cent.
Gribbin is a contributing
editor for New Scientist.
Cherfas teaches in the zool-
ogy department at Oxford
University.

The Torah is compared to
the Code of Hammurabi.

The secret ingredients of
mutual happiness in long-
term marriage appear to be
the joint sharing of power
and intimacy in meeting the
challenges that one-half
century of married life pre-
sents — input in decision-
making; ability to influence
one's spouse; shared inter-
ests and activities; open
communication; and ex-
pressing and receiving af-
fection and appreciation.
This was the conclusion of
a study by Tel Aviv Univer-
sity psychologist Dr. Ariella
Friedman and Dr. Judy
Todd of California State
University which surveyed
30 couples married over 45
years.
Men were found to be

During the year, the
Jewish Home for Aged also
celebrated its anniversary
with the groundbreaking
for its newest facility, the
Edward I. and Freda Fleis-
chman Residence and the
Louis C. and Edith B.
Blumberg Plaza, which will
house an additional 106 el-

happier in marriage than
women. The explanation of
the psychologists for this
finding is that in that gen-
eration which held a tradi-
tional view of marriage, the
husbands exerted most of
the power, and power was
found to be a factor
paramount to the happiness
of both.
Power and intimacy
were important for both
sexes. The two factors in-
teracted so that power
was less important to
those couples with a
greater level of intimacy,
and for those with a high
level of power, intimacy
was less crucial for thier
happiness.
Since in these couples,
married 45 to 66 years (50
years on the average),
both from the U.S. and from
Israel, Jews and non-Jews,
men exerted more power
than women, husbands
were happier, according to
the study. Concludes the
study, "making marriage a
positive institution for both
sexes would appear to de-
pend on equalizing power
between them and making
them capable of intimacy.
In a further study exam-
ining the effect of retirment
on happiness, power and in-
timacy in marriage, Dr.
Ariella Friedman and Dr.
Jacob Lomranza of Tel Aviv
University and Dr. Judy
Todd of California State
University found that while
only 28 percent of husbands
were rated happier after re-
tirement than before, 75
percent of the wives were
happier during the period.
Marital happiness was
found to be related to a shift
in individual power which
favored the wives. Men be-
came more dependant on
their wives, their lifestyles
changed, and they had to
learn household matters
which they had never dealt
with, while the wives'

Libya Threatens

UNITED NATIONS —
Libyan leader Moammar
Qaddafi threatened to

United Nations and set up

framework did not change
abruptly and they regarded
the period as a time of re-
newed energy, of
heightened creative and so-
cial activity; and overall
gratification.
Asked which period of
their life they enjoyed
most, over 60 percent of
the women replied that
the latest period was the
happiest in their lives,
while only 18 percent of
the men preferred the
latest period. Most men
preferred the early
period of marriage be-
fore they had assumed
heavy responsibilities.
Sums up Tel Aviv Uni-
versity's Dr. Ariella Fried-
man, "Despite the lack of
satisfaction and the frustra-
tion the participants ex-
pressed regarding many as-
pects of marriage, when
asked to offer an overview,
most said that if they had it
to do over, they would
marry the same mate again,
and there was an overall
pride in their marriage and
a feeling of being fortunate
that they were still to-
gether."

Demographics

covering the Home's history
and evolution will be pre-
sented.
The Jewish Home for
Aged was founded by the
hevra kadisha — burial
society — at the Beth Jacob
Synagogue. In 1907, a home
located at Brush and Win-
der was purchased for
$10,000 and was the first
organized effort in Detroit
to care for the aged.
Over the years, the Home
has expanded its role and
mission and is now servic-
ing the elderly at Borman
Hall and Meyer L. Prentis
Manor and through its out-
reach programs.

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
In 1980, rabbis performed
25,260 weddings in Israel
and 4,080 divorces.
