Social Comparison, Competition and Marriage.
Sanders, Glenn S.; Suls, Jerry
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v44 n3 p721-30 Aug 1982
Married couples competed on a test of mental flexibility. Husbands and wives were randomly determined as winners and losers in competition. Spouses reacted as strongly to competition with each other as they did to competition with a stranger. Females were more affected by competitive outcome, particularly intramarital competition.
