Longitudinal Prediction of Marital Discord from Premarital Expressions of Affect.
Smith, David A.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v58 n6 p780-98 Dec 1990
Used longitudinal design to evaluate association between affective features of premarital communication and postmarital relationship satisfaction. Found disengagement at premarriage negatively associated with marital satisfaction at 18 (n=84) and 30 (n=72) months after marriage. Negativity of premarital affective expression correlated negatively with premarital satisfaction (n=88) but not with postmarital satisfaction. (Author/NB)
