Romantic Relationships Research Lab : RRRLab

RRRLabbers Fall 2018


Our research projects concern couple members' positive and negative views of their romantic relationship and how couples get along with each other. Face-to-face interviews are conducted with each couple member separately about relationship events, and the emotional ups and downs of relationships.

Research topics include:

  • Understanding how couple members make meaning of the intimacy and conflict in their relationship
  • Partner member gender and views of relationship behavior and functioning
  • The role of positive and negative emotions in healthy romantic relationships
  • Views of Romantic relationships and links to conflict management strategies such as dating aggression and positive problem solving
