Robinson, Linda C.; Blanton, Priscilla W.
Family Relations, v42 n1 p38-45 Jan 1993
Asked 15 couples who had been married at least 30 years to give their perceptions of qualities that had sustained their relationship in times of closeness and relational strain. Key characteristics identified were intimacy balanced with autonomy, commitment, communication, religious orientation, and congruent perceptions of the relationship. Interrelationships among variables emerged, suggesting direction for future research. (Author/NB)
