Question 3

3. In what way is courtship (a serious, committed intimate relationship) a “developmental process?” How does the concept of a “summatory process” contribute to our understanding of this process? What roles do “idealization” and “pluralistic ignorance” play in this process? Typically, at some point in an intimate relationship, partners are challenged to clarify and even redefine the depth of their commitment to it. What factors/events/situations are likely to lead to this clarification or redefinition? What did Waller mean by the “principle of least interest” and what is its significance?

What are some of the theories that attempt to explain why there is such as thing as weddings? Which do you believe is most valid? Why?

Question 5

5. Describe in detail the social forces that provided the social context that led to the liberalization of sexual attitudes and practices in the 1960s and 1970s and contributed to this period being termed a “sexual revolution”. What are some of the important social consequences of these more liberal attitudes and practices? What factors served to restrain these attitudes and practices during the 1980s and 1990s? How did they do so? Is the current context more similar to the 1960s and 1970s or to the 1980s and 1990s in terms of sexual attitudes and practices? Why?
