The study suggests not only thinking in terms of work–family boundary segmentation and integration but also looking at the normative dimensions which can either enhance or exacerbate perceptions of the work–family interface. The value of the study also stems from its theoretically relevant target.
I am very grateful to Barbara Poggio, Barbara Risman, and Lea Sgier for their suggestions. I also thank Samantha K. Ammons and Erin L. Kelly for their useful comments. Finally, a special thanks to all people I interviewed for telling me their stories.
