A Theory and Investigation of the Effect of Exchange-Orientation on Marriage and Friendship
Murstein, Bernard I.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, 39, 3, 543-548, Aug 77
A theory of the importance and effect of an exchange-orientation for marriage and friendship was developed. It was hypothesized from this theory that an exchange-orientation in both members of the pair would be inimical to marriage adjustment and facilitative of situationally determined friendships. The data generally support the hypothesis. (Author)
