Tables 2 and 3 in Beaton, Doherty, and Rueter's "Family of Origin Processes and Attitudes of Expectant Fathers" (Volume 1 #2) were printed with misaligned borderlines. The corrected pages are reprinted here.

As expected, current family factors directly predicted attitudes about father involvement. As Figure 2 indicates, all three current family factors, expectant fathers' current marital relationships, expectant fathers' and expectant mothers' current relationships with their parents, and expectant mothers' attitudes about father involvement, were positively and significantly associated with expectant fathers' attitudes about father involvement.

As shown in Table 2, a number of the error terms were significantly correlated with one another. For example, the family closeness factor (E2) was positively and significantly correlated with the co-parent relationship factor (E3). The expectant father's current marital relationship factor (E4) was positively and significantly correlated with the current relationship with parents factor (E5). The expectant father's family closeness factor (E2) was positively and significantly correlated with the expectant father's current marital relationship factor (E4).

The analytical model produced a non-significant chi-square value ([chi square] = 30.81, df = 27, p = .28) indicating a good fit for the data. The Goodness of Fit Indices (GFI = .96, AGFI = .91, CFI = .99) (Hu & Bentler, 1999) and the critical N = 217.43 value (Maruyama, 1998) also suggested a good model fit. The model was also properly specified (RMSEA = .02, p < .05), which indicates that there was a sufficient number of possible solutions for the data considering the sample size. The observed indicators were also very reliable (RMR = .04, p < .05) (Hu & Bentler, 1999).

REGRESSION ANALYSES

We conducted regression analyses primarily to study linear and curvilinear relationships between current and family of origin variables and the dependent variable, expectant fathers' attitudes (see Table 3). Model 1 includes all of the family of origin and current family variables. These variables were entered into the regression
