Title:Work Hard, Play Hard: A Study on Work and Leisure Activities in Romantic Relationships
Author(s):Beck, Sydney T.; Ogolsky, Brian; Monk, James K.
Subject(s):romantic relationships
Abstract:While stress in relationships is usually most apparent during very difficult life situations, everyday stress can go undetected as being an important problem in romantic relationships. This study focused on how everyday stress from arguments affects couples and the maintenance of their relationship. Specifically, I looked at how individual work and leisure habits are viewed by their significant other and how disagreement over these activities lead to arguments between partners. This study focused on quantitative data taken from past research in Dr. Brian Ogolsky's commitment and relationships study. More precisely, it examined the significant work and leisure activities that were related to the greatest increases in stress in a relationship. Implications from the research could help couple acknowledge and remedy the everyday disagreements in their relationship.
