What Kind Of Couple Are You?

Drawing from over four decades of research data, we have been able to categorize couples into five types: Conflict-Avoiding, Validating, Volatile, Hostile, and Hostile-Detached. 

The three happy couple types (Conflict-Avoiding, Validating, and Volatile) come from Harold Raush’s landmark book Communication, Conflict, and Marriage, in which Raush analyzes interactions between partners to discriminate happily from unhappily married couples. Each type is very different from the others, and each type of couple has its benefits and risks.

Of the two unhappy couple types we have been able to identify in the Love Lab, Hostile couples stayed unhappily married, while Hostile-Detached couples eventually divorced.

Do you know what type you are?
