  3. Our Article • It’s not all about her: men’s mate value and mate retention • Miner, J., Starratt, V., Shackelfor, T. (2009) • Case Study of 235 Women • Committed Sexual Relationship with a Man • Average Relationship Length: 4 years Miner, J., Starratt, V., Shackelfor, T. (2009). It’s not all about her: men’s mate value and mate retention. Elsevier, 47, 214-218. Retrieved from EBSCO Host database

  4. How The Study Was Conducted • Online surveys to report data • TSDI • Male Retention Inventory-SF • 5 Categories Four Hypotheses Tested Miner, J., Starratt, V., Shackelfor, T. (2009). It’s not all about her: men’s mate value and mate retention. Elsevier, 47, 214-218. Retrieved from EBSCO Host database

  5. Article Overview • Why Use Mate Retention Behaviors? • What Types of Mate Retention Behaviors are there? • Cost-inflicting • Benefit Provisioning Miner, J., Starratt, V., Shackelfor, T. (2009). It’s not all about her: men’s mate value and mate retention. Elsevier, 47, 214-218. Retrieved from EBSCO Host database

  6. Cost Inflicting Mate Retention Behaviors • Goals? • Risky Choice…… • What Kind of Women are at risk? Miner, J., Starratt, V., Shackelfor, T. (2009). It’s not all about her: men’s mate value and mate retention. Elsevier, 47, 214-218. Retrieved from EBSCO Host database

  7. Relation between cost-inflicting mate retention and attractiveness of husbands Adapted From:From vigilance to violence: Mate retention tactics in married couples .By Buss, David M.; Shackelford, Todd K.Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Vol 72(2), Feb 1997, 346-361

  8. Resource-Provisioning Mate Retention • More likely to be used When Both the Mate Values are high • Examples? Miner, J., Starratt, V., Shackelfor, T. (2009). It’s not all about her: men’s mate value and mate retention. Elsevier, 47, 214-218. Retrieved from EBSCO Host database

  9. Results • 3 of the four Hypotheses were supported • Women with high mate value with a mate of high value • More resource-provisioning • Less cost-inflicting Low Value Men more likely to do cost-inflicting behavior Mens Mate Value determined in which behaviors he would partake Miner, J., Starratt, V., Shackelfor, T. (2009). It’s not all about her: men’s mate value and mate retention. Elsevier, 47, 214-218. Retrieved from EBSCO Host database

  10. A Critical Review • The researchers only surveyed females who were in their early 20s, so the results may not be applicable to a wider population • Their male partners’ input would have been interesting to gather in order to have comparable values as well • All ‘data’ was taken from the women's perception, love tends to blind us to our partners flaws and ego tends to let us inflate our own. It would be really interesting to have a panel of mate value experts analyze both partners to determine a more accurate mate value for each partner

  11. What we found interesting • The retention behaviors that males engaged in depended more so on the male’s mate value than it did on the women’s mate value • Men of a lower mate value with a partner of high mate value were the most likely to engage in cost-inflicting mate behaviors • It may be that men who perform benefit-provisioning behaviors are,as a consequence, rated as more valuable by their partners. Assessments of mate value and mate retention behaviors at different time points across the duration of a relationship, rather than at a single point as in the current research, might provide additional insight into the nature of the relationship between men’s benefit-provisioning mate retention behaviors and men’s mate value.
