The Role of Jealousy in Marriage.
Bringle, Robert G.; And Others
Questionnaires were completed by 131 married couples to determine the role of dispositional jealousy on marital success. The total jealousy in the marriage was found to be negatively related to several indices of marital success. Further analyses indicated that marital outcomes were negatively associated with the husband's perception of the wife's jealousy. Neither his own jealousy, the wife's jealousy, nor the wife's perception of the husband's jealousy were associated with the person's appraisal of the marriage. It was also found that husband's outcomes were associated with actual differences between husband and wife jealousy. Couples similar in jealousy were rated more positively by husbands than were dissimilar couples. There were no similar effects due to differences in jealousy for the wife's outcomes. (Author)
