Abstract

Based on prior theoretical formulations, a social-psychological model of the dissolution decision is advanced. Sequential in character and emphasizing the duality of the marital relationship, the model modifies and refines previous theoretical efforts, and seeks to extend their explanatory power by incorporating various principles of social exchange theory. By specifying the casual linkages between the model's components, a theory of the dissolution decision is suggested.
