Linking Physical Vulnerability and Relationship Regulation

Can a headache change how you feel about a romantic partner? Dr. Lamarche proposes that relationship risk monitoring systems have evolved from more basic risk detection systems, and can consequently be activated by non-relational sources of vulnerability. Data from a series of studies will illustrate how physical vulnerability, such as physical pain, can shift the way some people feel about their close relationships – for better or for worse.
