Western Journal of Communication, v64 n3 p308-29 Sum 2000
Examines factors predicted to influence individuals' responses to romantic jealousy. Details a study in which undergraduate students completed scales measuring relationship-specific linking, relationship-specific rumination, possessiveness, trust, and communicative responses to jealousy. Suggests that jealous rumination is an important cognitive mechanism that motivates some individuals to enact counterproductive responses to jealousy. (PM)
