By Alexandru Mihalcea, Dragos Iliescu and Margareta Dincă

Abstract

AbstractThe aim of this study was to describe the patterns of couple adjustment at the level of the Romanian culture depending of the educational level of the partners. We used Dyadic Adjustment Scale – DAS, a classical method of evaluating the quality of the marital relationship. Results demonstrate that in the case of university graduates, the factor specific to adjustment is consensus, which means high degree of understanding between partners regarding important factors for the relationship such as: money, religion, and time spent together. In Romania, the poorness and the low level of education are associated with refusal of unmarried relationship and the preference for marriage
