About the Authors
  • How do we choose a partner to initiate a relationship with, and what makes us stay in a given relationship over time? These questions are most often pursued by scholars with an emphasis on the internal thoughts, feelings, and motivations of individual decision-makers. Conversely, this volume highlights the importance of considering external influences on individual decision-making in close relationships. Featuring contributions from internationally renowned scholars, the volume is divided into two interrelated sections. The first section considers global and societal influences on romantic relationships and the second focuses on social network and communicative influences on romantic relationships. Taken together, this collection helps us to better understand how external factors influence the internal machinations of those involved in intimate relationships.

    • Covers multiple levels of social influence, beyond a couple's own social network
    • Includes the latest advances in the research of social influences on couple relationships
    • Discusses military cultural influence on relationships, as well as how societal prejudices can impact dyadic relationships

    Reviews & endorsements

    "External influences, such as those rooted in social networks and norms, are essential to understanding relationships. This is an informative and inspiring volume that I recommend to any scientist or academic professional interested in relationships."
    Paul A. M. Van Lange, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam

    "The importance of understanding the impact of social contexts on relationships has never been more evident. This timely collection of chapters offers a diverse and wonderfully rich overview of research programs that take contextual influences on relationships seriously. It's a highly informative must-read for relationship scholars."
    Harry T. Reis, University of Rochester

    "Put together by one of the most prolific, high-profile researchers in the study of relationships, this unique book stands out from the many recent books on personal relationships because of the diversity and unexpectedness of the topics considered … an invaluable resource for understanding relationships … Summing up: essential."
    R. R. Cornelius, Choice
