Title

Do Couples Who Flow Together Grow Together?

Presentation Type

Poster Presentation

Abstract

While there is significant literature on the social dimension of flow (Walker, 2021) and some research demonstrating that social flow is more enjoyable than solitary flow (Walker, 2010), no scholarship reports the role that shared flow-producing activities play in relationship satisfaction for couples. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with two sets of couples to explore four questions: a.) How do frequent, shared activities contribute to relationship satisfaction? b.) How do these activities align with the nine dimensions of flow? c.) How do frequent, shared activities contribute to relationship satisfaction? d.) What advice do these research participants offer to other couples?
