Orbuch, Terri L.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n4 p815-26 Nov 1993
Examined stories that 264 married couples told about how their relationship developed. Courtship stories were coded on three sets of dimensions: story style, storytelling process, and story content. Found that courtship stories told in first year of marriage followed patterns that explain meaning couple is deriving from becoming a couple and that predict marital well-being in third year.
