Predicting Marital Instability from Spouse and Observer Reports of Marital Interaction.
Matthews, Lisa S.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v58 n3 p641-55 Aug 1996
Examines the relationship between the quality of marital interaction, both as perceived by spouses and as reported by outside observers, and marital instability and divorce in long-time married couples (n=436). Finds that hostility and marital warmth were fairly accurate predictors of which couples would divorce or be extremely stable or unstable. Discusses other results. (RB)
