Long-Distance and Proximal Romantic Relationship Satisfaction: Attachment and Closeness Predictors
Roberts, Amber; Pistole, M. Carole
Journal of College Counseling, v12 n1 p5 Spr 2009
Relationship satisfaction was examined in college student long-distance romantic relationships (LDRRs) and geographically proximal romantic relationships (PRRs). LDRR/PRR attachment style proportions and relationship satisfaction were similar. Multiple regression analyses revealed that low attachment avoidance contributed uniquely to high LDRR satisfaction and that low attachment avoidance, low attachment anxiety, and living apart contributed uniquely to high PRR satisfaction. Relational closeness was not a unique predictor of LDRR or PRR satisfaction. (Contains 1 table.)
