        BACKGROUND OF FAMILY STRESS RESEARCH This article will adopt Boss's () definition of stress as a condition where the demands of one's environment exceed one's resources, causing a decline in coping ability, and her definition of family as "a continuing system of interacting persons bound together by processes of shared rituals and rules even more than by shared biology" . Family stress can be defined as a real or imagined imbalance between the demands on the family and the family's ability to meet those demands. For example, if a family is forced to renegotiate a home mortgage from 7 percent interest to the current market rate, this could place the family under stress.
