The current study examines three structural equation models concerning work-to-family conflict. The predictors and outcomes of work-to-family conflict pertained to family domain, represented by family stressors such as partnership disagreements; to work domain, represented by work stressors such as work demands; and to affective domain, represented by subjective well-being perception. We focus on the relationship between the three domains (work, family, and affective) and work-to-family conflict using the European Social Survey R2 (2004/2005) data. The aim of the study is to explore the bidirectional links between work-to-family conflict and selected factors: work demands, partnership disagreement and subjective well-being. Our results support the spill-over theory (Eby et al. 2010; Champoux, 1978) claiming that the domains of work and family spill over and that work stressors and family stressors can both explain work-family conflict as predictors and be explained by work-family conflict as its outcomes. The results also show reciprocal effects of the affective domain on work-to-family conflict and vice versa.
