About the Authors
  • Relationship maintenance encompasses a wide range of activities that partners use to preserve their relationships. Despite the importance of these efforts, considerably more empirical focus has been devoted to starting (i.e. initiation) and ending (i.e. dissolution) relationships than on maintaining them. In this volume, internationally renowned scholars from a variety of disciplines describe diverse sets of relationship maintenance efforts in order to show why some relationships endure, whereas others falter. By focusing on 'what to do' rather than 'what not to do' in relationships, this book paints a more comprehensive picture of the forms, functions, and contexts of relationship maintenance. It is essential reading for scholars and students in psychology, communication, human development and family science, sociology, and couple/marriage and family therapy.

    • Proposes an integrative and expansive view of relationship maintenance
    • Addresses existing gaps in the literature to offer readers unique insight into adaptive relational processes over the course of relationship development
    • Provides a multidisciplinary view to advance relationship science, with perspectives from social psychology, communication, sociology, developmental science, family studies, couple and family therapy, and clinical psychology represented in the volume
