Miller, Paul J. E.; Caughlin, John P.; Huston, Ted L.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v65 n4 p978-95 Nov 2003
Examines the processes that underlie the association between trait expressiveness and marital satisfaction. Analyses suggested that expressiveness promotes satisfaction by leading spouses to engage in affectionate behavior and by leading them to idealize their partner. Extends previous research by providing a plausible explanation of the connections between trait expressiveness and marital satisfaction. (Contains 48 references, 4 tables, and 2 figures.) (GCP)
