Adolescence, v33 n131 p575-82 Fall 1998
Randomly selected college juniors and seniors (N=101) completed questionnaires concerning marital conflict, parental attachment, and attitudes about love and sex. Results indicated that intimacy was negatively correlated with parental conflict and divorce. Divorce and higher levels of conflict were associated with lower levels of intimacy in students' romantic relationships. (Author)
