Abstract

This study examines the relationships among Korean young adult daughters' and their mothers' perceptions of mother-adult daughter attachment, their interaction, geographic distance between them, and daughters' marital/parental status. One hundred pairs of young adult daughters and their mothers in Seoul, Korea responded to the mother-adult daughter attachment questionnaire. The results revealed that mother-adult daughter attachment was reciprocal. Daughters' and mothers' perceptions of attachment were differently influenced by degree of differences between both sides' perceptions, frequencies of interaction, and daughters' marital status. Geographic distance had no effects on perceptions of attachment. Ce mémoire étudie les relations entre les mères et leurs filles adultes : la perception de leur attachement mutuelle, leurs échanges, la distance géographique, le statut des filles mariées et de leurs parents, etc. Les analyses ont été faites à partir de sondages réalisés auprès de cent mères et filles, habitant à Séoul, en Corée du Sud. Les résultats montrent que leur attachement est réciproque, la perception dépendant du degré de leur attachement, de la fréquence de leurs contacts, et du statut des filles mariées. En revanche, la distance géographique n'a pas une influence importante. Este estudio examina sobre los relacionamientos entre las hijas adultas jóvenes coreanas y sus madres en las percepciones de afección, de sus intereacciones, de la distancia geográfica entre ellas, y el estado matimonial/paternal de las hijas. Cien pares, de hijas adultas jóvenes y madres de Seúl, Corea del Sur, respondieron al cuestinario de afección entre hijas adultas y madres. Los resultados revelaron que la afección entre hija adulta y madre era mutua. Las percepciones de la afección entre hijas y madres fueron influenciadas diferentemente según el grado de percepción entre cada lados, frecuencia de interacciones, y el estado matrimonial de sus hijas. La distancia geográfica no tenía efectos en las percepciones de afección.
