Mate Selection and Marital Success

By: Amber , Dominika , Meghan and Brendan



What is Mate Selection and Marital Success ?

  • Greater marital success is a result of a dating experience that enables the partners to get to know each other (free choice marriage) while arranged marriages are not successful because you are forced to meet their partner.
  • Intimacy within the relationship is very important in marriage , while many people believe that they should test their sexual relations with one another before marriage .
murstein s market e xperience p erspective
Murstein’s Market Experience Perspective
  • Murstein suggests that mate selection is similar to buying a car as you should test drive different partners before settling down and committing to one.
  • Murstein suggests that marrying your first love is not a great idea, because you may not yet have a good idea of what you want in a long-term partner.
  • Whyte argues against Murstein’s market experience perspective saying, that “you cannot ‘test drive’ various partners at the same time”.
  • Whyte suggests that arranged marriage practices are more likely to allow young people to meet and consider a number of potential partners at the same time before settling on one.
does cohabitation work
Does Cohabitation work?
  • Cohabitation is viewed as a trial or a test to see how a couple can be together in a real life setting rather than just on dates.
  • Woman who cohabitate with a partner are more likely to divorce the partner that they cohabited with rather than men.
  • Many couples within this field do not believe this relationship as permanent because they do not commit to the relationship by putting all the resources together.

  • If you have a higher sexual expression then it will develop better intimacy , commitment or devotion within a relationship but it can also lead to preceding the development of relationships if you’re permissive.
  • Couples who remember being intimate and in love have the happiest marriages not relating to their dating experience.
