|Title:||Preliminary Findings Supporting a New Model of How Couples Maintain Excitement in Romantic Relationships||Contributor(s):||Malouff, John M (author); Mundy, Susan A (author); Galea, Tamika (author); Bothma, Vicole N (author)||Publication Date:||2015||DOI:||10.1080/01926187.2015.1034634||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17386||Abstract:||In Study 1, 103 adults involved in an exciting romantic relationship described how they keep their relationship exciting. The responses provided the foundation for a new model of how couples keep their relationship exciting. The model includes exciting activities that are passionate, adventurous, playful, sexual, spontaneous, and romantic, along with three relationship-maintaining activities: communicating effectively, joint activities, and autonomy. In Study 2, 104 adults rated their relationship on the three relationship maintenance variables, on exciting activities, on excitement, and on relationship satisfaction. The relationship-maintenance and exciting activities showed significant associations with both excitement and satisfaction, providing preliminary support for the model.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||American Journal of Family Therapy, 43(3), p. 227-237||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||0192-6187
