dc.description.abstractThis study examined relationship contentment, length of relationship, alcohol expectancies, and gender roles as potential factors influencing alcohol concordance in couples attending a Southeastern university. Simple linear regression revealed that males’ weekly rates of alcohol consumption were predictive of females’ level of drinking. Consistent with previous research on married couples, relationship contentment was predictive of alcohol concordance in this population. Unlike the results of previous studies, the present analyses suggested that relationship length did not predict alcohol concordance among these couples. The alcohol expectancies of male, but not female partners was predictive of alcohol concordance. Gender roles did not appear related to concordant patterns of drinking in this sample. Explanations of the present results are examined and future directions for research suggested.
