There is a deafening silence concerning mate selection in relationship therapy. Do we dare talk about what research says works–and doesn’t work? Are we afraid any insight might be used to justify leaving a good-enough relationship? While we all know relationships which defy logic, there are clear principles which can increase the probability of a more perfect union. These and other research facts will be explored.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Delineate between dating and mating criteria.
  2. List two predictors of satisfaction in relationships.
  3. List the strongest predictor of stability in relationships.
