To address this gap in the literature, the work-family balance dichotomy was re-conceptualized for the current scale as role balance between individual and relational roles.
While broadening the construct of balance to be more inclusive of the multiple and somewhat fluid roles emerging adults inhabit was essential, it was determined that important elements of the work-family balance construct should be retained in order to better ground the new individual-relational role balance construct in theory based on the existing literature in adulthood.
