dc.description.abstract The primary goal of this study was to assess the quality of participants' intimate heterosexual relationships as determined by their relationships with their fathers and the amount of conflict between parents as observed by the children. Two hundred two single, white students between the ages of 18 and 22 years participated. One hundred two were male and 100 were female. Participants answered questionnaires which consisted of a demographics section, seven items which reported conflict between parents, six measures which assessed their current heterosexual relationships, and two measures which assessed past and present relationships with fathers. Respondents who reported closeness to their fathers also reported satisfaction with their dating activities. Females were more likely to report loving and liking their partners, and also reported more intimacy with their partners. Both males and females were more likely to report more liking and loving of their partners if they also reported minimal parental conflict.
