This study found that the extent to which variables from the interdependence, individual differences, and problem-solving models were linked to both relationship satisfaction and relationship commitment did not differ for black dating heterosexual couples and white dating heterosexual couples. The predictive power of these variables also did not differ for men and for women. Therefore, these models make robust predictions regarding both relationship satisfaction and relationship commitment across race and gender in dating heterosexual couples.
