Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Research in the last few decades has concluded that 90% of Americans get married and that 80% of those who subsequently divorce also remarry (Norton & Moorman, 1987). As a result, the issue of intimate relationships has been significant in the area of counseling. Women often present in counseling with relationship issues and are more likely than males to contact a counselor about martial [sic] or relationship problems. Women appear to be more likely to pursue the relationship in an effort to resolve an area of conflict and thus, it seems, are more often willing to attempt therapy (Wamboldt & Reiss, 1989). Wambolt and Reiss ( 1989) suggest that because of socialization, women are more often viewed as "relationship specialists," and are promoted to focus considerable energy in understanding the underlying complexities of their relationships.
