Abstract The first goal of this longitudinal study was to examine the strength and direction of the relations between post-separation parental conflict (PSPC) and father–child physical contact, as reported by the mother, at the time of separation (Time 1) and in the following 2 years (Time 2). A cross-lagged panel model was conducted with a sample of 198 parents of children from 3 to 8 years old at the time of separation. The results indicated that PSPC at Time 1 predicted a lower frequency of father–child physical contact at Time 2, whereas the inverse relationship was not found. The strength ..read more

Placing a child's or partner's needs above my own: Impacts on a couple's sexual relationship
Personal Relationships
by Laura M. Vowels, Natalie M. Sisson, Joëlle Darwiche, Emily A. Impett
2w ago
Abstract Parent couples often struggle to maintain satisfying sex lives perhaps because partners have different priorities to balance including the self, their relationship with each other, and their relationships with their children. Given that parents are increasingly involved in supporting adult children, it is important to examine how prioritization of other's needs over one's own shapes a couple's sexual relationship. In a sample of 179 parent couples with university student children living at home, we examined whether prioritizing one's partner's (i.e., partner-centrism) and/or their chi ..read more

Personal Relationships
by Yusuf Barburoğlu, Eda Çürükvelioğlu‐Köksal, S. Burcu Özgülük Üçok, Yuvamathi Gandhi, Pamela J. Lannutti, Ashley K. Randall
2w ago
Abstract Previous research with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and various sexually and gender diverse (LGBTQ+) people has largely highlighted how experiences of discrimination and marginalization, and mental health outcomes are related. However, it is important that researchers operate from a strength-based approach to identify how aspects of one's identity may foster resilience. It is crucial that people working with LGBTQ+ individuals have empirically supported and culturally verified measures to assess such constructs. In this regard, the Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Positive Id ..read more

Marital strain and emotional intimacy in midlife couples: The moderating role of empathy
Personal Relationships
by Ella Carasso, Segel‐Karpas Dikla
2w ago
Abstract Emotional intimacy is considered a fundamental factor contributing to the quality of marital relationships. However, marital strain can often limit intimacy. Thus, our first objective was to explore the intricate interplay between spouses' sense of intimacy and the levels of marital strain experienced by both themselves and their partners. In addition, the way partners respond to the challenges posed by marital strain can be pivotal in shaping the overall dynamics. Therefore, our second objective was to investigate whether and how the empathy exhibited by partners can protect the coup ..read more

Qualitative analysis of naturalistically observed conversations among same‐ and different‐gender couples coping with breast cancer
Personal Relationships
by Katherine Emily Hague, M. Anais Martinez, Megan L. Robbins
3w ago
Abstract This naturalistic observation study explored communication between partners in different types of romantic couples coping with breast cancer (women with women [WW] and women with men [WM]). Past research has suggested WW, versus WM, couples are more likely to have a concordant, immersive approach to coping with illness, characterized by increased emotional disclosure and an emphasis on caregiving. This study aimed to further explore similarities and differences among WW and WM that may suggest how these types of couples cope with and adjust to cancer. Women with breast cancer and thei ..read more

Participants in the first sample also provided open-ended responses about the role of race in their relationship. Participants who reported higher pa ..read more

Morality in romantic relationships: The role of moral disengagement in relationship satisfaction, definitions of infidelity, and committed cheating
Personal Relationships
by Verena Aignesberger, Tobias Greitemeyer
2M ago
Abstract Despite the moral condemnation of infidelity in romantic relationships, its prevalence remains widespread. This might be partly explained by moral disengagement (MD), the ability to decouple one's actions from internalized moral standards. While social influences are an inherent part of the conceptualization of MD, they have not been studied in romantic couples. We investigated connections between MD and relationship satisfaction, cheating definitions, and cheating in a sample of 236 dating and married couples. Partners' levels of MD were positively correlated. Actor-Partner-Interdepe ..read more
