Proposal Focus

Research

Abstract

The challenges that military families face due to deployments can become very stressful. These changes directly impact at-home partners and children, changing the dynamic and routines of the entire family. The new roles and routines established can be conflicting for both partners, resulting in marital conflict and lower levels of satisfaction. In general, it has been found that the quality and frequency of communication are related to the quality of relationships. However, for deployed military families, engaging in frequent and good communication between couples can be challenging. This study will examine if quality and quantity of communication are related to the level of satisfaction in deployed military couples. Also, what method of communication is more likely to related to satisfaction will be explored.
