Product Description


"Ogolsky, Lloyd, and Cate have provided researchers, practitioners, teachers, and students with a succinct and helpful text that provides important and relevant information on the developmental course of romantic relationships." - Brien K. Ashdown, PsycCRITIQUES

Romantic relationships are inherently complex, requiring a multidisciplinary approach. Ogolsky, Lloyd, and Cate have done a masterful job of weaving together what we know about intimate relationships, and have done so in a very accessible, readable manner. Bravo!"- Christopher R. Agnew, Purdue University, USA

"This well-written text captures the inherently interdisciplinary field of personal relationships to highlight theory and research on the development of romantic relationships. A wide lens on the topic is provided, including a historical perspective on romantic partnerships and a discussion of multiple types of romantic relationships. It will make an excellent text or supplementary text in a variety of courses." - Susan Sprecher, Illinois State University, USA

"This classic text has been updated to 21st century and it has been done extremely well. The research and theory are up to date, no important issues are left out, and the writing is clear and precise." -Tom Holman, Brigham Young University, USA

"The …strengths of the book are its sole focus on courtship [and] its attention to same-sex relationships. … The authors write very clearly. …It would be appropriate for advanced undergraduates …graduate students, and other scholars who want current information in the area of courtship. … When I teach Interpersonal Relationships, I would seriously consider adopting this book." – Mark A. Fine, University of North Carolina - Greensboro, USA
