This investigation of the effects of stressful life events on rural African American women’s relationship well‐being, psychological functioning, and parenting included 361 married or long‐term cohabiting women. Associations among stressful events, socioeconomic status, perceived racial discrimination, coping strategies, psychological functioning, relationship well‐being, and parenting were tested. Stressful events were related directly to diminished relationship well‐being and heightened psychological distress and indirectly to compromised parenting. The results can inform research and intervention with African American women.
