Abstract
The trend towards integration between the social support and marital research areas provided the impetus for the present dissertation. Based on Karney and Bradbury's (1995) theoretical framework, marital conflict and support were conceived as two key interpersonal domains in marriage involving particular interaction episodes in which spouses exchange communication behaviors to cope with marital and personal difficulties. The major aims of the present dissertation were the study of (1) the co-occurrence of conflict and support in marital relationships, (2) their co-operation on marital outcomes, and (3) the relational contributors to social support in marriage. An additional objective of this dissertation was an investigation of gender differences and similarities in both domains. A series of studies were conducted with samples of predominantly well-functioning couples. Our data were collected by means of observational laboratory studies as well as large-scale surveys.
