Laursen, Brett; Williams, Vickie A.
New Directions for Child Development, n78 p3-20 Win 1997
This study examined the developmental variations in adolescent close relationships with family members, friends, and romantic partners. Within the context of social exchange theory, the study shows how interdependence and closeness shift from parents to peers and romantic partners, with patterns that differ somewhat for adolescents with and without a romantic partner.
