Abstract (type = abstract)
This dissertation aimed to explore the dynamics of couples in which one person has an ambivalent attachment style, and the other has an avoidant attachment style. Attachment theory has successfully explained behavior in romantic relationships for many years. Researchers have established the benefits of a secure attachment and clinicians have sought to promote security in couples counseling. Still, the relatively common ambivalent-avoidant dyad has shown relationship persistence despite reporting adverse relationship experiences. In a longitudinal exploration of 268 dating couples, we identify paths toward healthier relationships for these couples. Depending on the attachment/gender combination, ambivalent-avoidant couples achieved higher levels of resilience and life satisfaction through gender role expectation, relationship power inequity, and conflict. Persistence and adaptation to these experiences help ambivalent-avoidant couples realize relationship satisfaction through developed resilience and life satisfaction. Implications for future research and clinical initiatives are discussed.
