Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n1 p95-105 Feb 1990
Compared interactions of 11 dissatisfied and 11 satisfied couples on basis of trained observers' ratings of spouses' behavior through time on 3 scales: withdrawn/involved, hostile/friendly, and displeasure/pleasure. Dissatisfied coupled evidenced significantly lower mean ratings of hostility and displeasure, but no differences in withdrawal. Particular temporal relationships characterized each marital satisfaction group. (Author/NB)
