Informations and abstract

Keywords: interpersonal perceptions, perceptual congruence variables, dyadic coping, relationship quality

The study examined the role played by dyadic coping styles (both self-perceptions and perceptions of the other) and interpersonal perceptions of those styles in defining couple functioning. The sample is composed of 124 couples. Results confirmed the association between dyadic coping and relationship satisfaction. With regard to perceptual congruence variables results highlight that Perceived similarity is higher than Actual similarity and that men's Understanding is higher when referred to negative dyadic coping styles than to positive ones. Moreover self-perceptions and perceptions of the other seemed to be more relevant for relationship satisfaction than perceptual congruence variables.
