Hidden Agendas in Marriage: Affective and Longitudinal Dimensions.
Krokoff, Lowell J.
Communication Research, v17 n4 p483-99 Aug 1990
Examines how couples' discussions of troublesome problems reveal hidden agendas (issues not directly discussed or explored). Finds disgust and contempt are at the core of both love and respect agendas for husbands and wives. Finds that wives' more than husbands' hidden agendas are directly predictive of how negatively they argue at home. (SR)
