The Process of Intimacy: Similarity, Understanding and Gender.
Heller, Patrice E.; Wood, Beatrice
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v24 n3 p273-88 Jul 1998
Examines gender and three aspects of couples' (N=50) marital intimacy using a method establishing both objective and subjective indices of intimacy. Results suggest that high intimacy is based on both understanding and similarity of intimate experience. Women reported higher levels of intimacy and were also better than men in predicting their partners' feelings. (Author/MKA)
