Commitment Predictors: Long-Distance versus Geographically Close Relationships
Pistole, M. Carole; Roberts, Amber; Mosko, Jonathan E.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n2 p146-153 Spr 2010
In this web-based study, the authors examined long-distance relationships (LDRs) and geographically close relationships (GCRs). Two hierarchical multiple regressions (N = 138) indicated that attachment predicted LDR and GCR commitment in Step 1. Final equations indicated that high satisfaction and investments predicted LDR commitment, whereas low attachment avoidance, low cooperative caregiving, high satisfaction, and low alternatives predicted GCR commitment. The pattern of predictors differed for LDRs versus GCRs.
