Abstract:

The main goal of the article is to explore the possible predictors of romantic relationship satisfaction. The model includes attachment styles, early maladaptive schemas, conflict resolution styles, and emotional expressivity. The instruments to measure the former three and romantic relationship satisfaction were adapted to the Bulgarian cultural context. A total of 308 subjects were included in the study on a random basis. The data show that the secure attachment style, the emotional deprivation schema, and the problem withdrawal conflict resolution style predict romantic relationship satisfaction. The results create an opportunity for professionals in the field of psychology to use new counselling approaches.

Keywords:
