The article presents information on a study which explored the differences between the perceptions and the actual experiences of women at different ages living multi-role lifestyles, with a particular focus on well-being. Work was highlighted by bath groups as having a huge role to play in their well-being, but the nature of their work role was perceived to have considerably changed because of the demands of parenthood. Both groups agreed that a multi-role lifestyle would benefit their well-being.
