Role of Gender in Behavioral Interdependence and Relationship Outcomes for Premarital Couples

Role of Gender in Behavioral Interdependence and Relationship Outcomes for Premarital Couples One aspect of gender identity, preferences forgender-related activities, was examined using gender andinterdependence theories for a sample of 59,predominately Caucasian, premarital couples. Respondents completed interviews in which they reported ontheir preferences for activities, relationshipsatisfaction, other relationship dimensions, and actualperformance of the activities. Groups of couples were created by using median splits to reflect thesimilarity and traditionality of coupled partners'preferences for gender-related activities. Two mainfindings were apparent: (a) couples in which bothpartners liked the activities and couples in which bothpartners held traditional preferences had positiverelationship outcomes, and (b) couples in which bothpartners disliked the activities had the least favorable outcomes.
