Transactional Relations Between Couple Relationship Quality and Depressive Symptoms
2019 National Council on Family Relations Annual Conference
Fort Worth, TX
The three innovative papers in this symposium focus on individual well-being in the context of couple relationships. Together, they underline the significance of capturing complex dynamics linking couples’ relationship quality and well-being from early adulthood to middle and later life. In particular, these papers examine the financial wellbeing of young adults, the psychological well-being of midlife couples, and physical wellbeing in later life, utilizing longitudinal data to examine change over time and state-of-the-art data analysis techniques. This symposium will stimulate nuanced conversations regarding links between couple relationships and individual well-being and help move the literature on individual wellbeing towards greater consideration of interpersonal, transactional, and family systemic perspectives.
