Emmers, Tara M.; Canary, Daniel J.
Communication Quarterly, v44 n2 p166-82 Spr 1996
Examines, relying on uncertainty reduction theory, the effect of communication strategies on assessments of relational repair and intimacy. Finds that 100 heterosexual romantically involved couples nominated unfaithfulness, third-party competition, and geographic distance as most negatively affecting their relationships. Finds that perceptions of relational repair were tied to the degree of self-reported intimacy. (PA)
