dc.description.abstract This thesis has compared a sample of married couples with a matched sample of cohabiting couples from the Ball State University area on the variables Affective Support, Mutual Knowledge, and Relationship Satisfaction.Reviewing the literature on marital adjustment, the American society and the family system, and heterosexual cohabitation, it was hypothesized that cohabitants would exhibit greater degrees of the three interpersonal variables under examination. The data, however, necessitated a rejection of the hypotheses; explanations for the findings are offered, as well as suggestions for further research.
