Geoff MacDonald, Tara Marshall, Judith Gere, and July Lies in November issue of Cross Cultural Research
, former SPA graduate students Tara Marshall (now a lecturer at Brunel University) and Judith Gere (now a post-doctoral fellow at Penn State University), former U of T undergraduate July Lies, and Atsushi Shimotomai of Senshu University in Japan, have published a paper entitled "Valuing Romantic Relationships: The Role of Family Approval Across Cultures" in Cross Cultural Research. The paper explores differences across cultures varying in interdependence regarding the role of family approval when becoming emotionally dependent on a romantic partner. The research shows that in Canada and Australia (nations relatively low in interdependence), family's approval of the relationship plays little role in allowing oneself to become emotionally dependent. However, in Indonesia and Japan (nations relatively high in interdpendence), people do not allow themselves to become fully emotionally involved in a relationship unless they believe the family approves. The data serve as a reminder that in cultures where marriage is seen as a joining of two existing families (rather than as the formation of a new family unit), the role of family approval is likely to be crucial in regulating relationship behaviour.Click here to download a PDF of the article.
