Perceived level of intimacy within a relationship predicts relational uncertainty
Date:8/13/2008

University Park, PA August 13, 2008 Relational Uncertainty refers to people's lack of confidence in their perceptions of relationship involvement. A new study in the journal Personal Relationships evaluated associations between intimacy and relational uncertainty and found that fluctuations in perceptions of relationships are meaningful aspects of non-marital romantic relationships.

Denise Haunani Solomon of Pennsylvania State University and Jennifer A. Theiss of Rutgers University administered a web-based survey to 315 unmarried college students about their relationship weekly for six weeks.

Researchers found that the level of intimacy people perceived within a relationship in any given week significantly predicted perceptions of relational uncertainty and interference from a partner. The data revealed the highest levels of relational uncertainty when intimacy was low.

"Our results suggest that when intimacy ebbs, doubts about the relationship emerge," the authors conclude. "Making emerging adults aware of how romantic associations inevitably pose a threat to a person's subjective well-being might help them to form more realistic romantic relationship goals."
