Relationship of Marital Attitudes with Adverse Childhood Experiences and Present Family Relationship in Young Adults
Soni Kewalramani and Sneha Hazra
Marital Attitudes and Expectations refer to an individual’s thoughts, beliefs and approach towards the institution of marriage and relevant anticipations regarding the characteristics of one’s own marital relationship. Adverse Childhood Experience insinuates one’s exposure to intensive and habitual toxic stress or traumatic events before the age of 18 years. Family Relationship pertains to the degree of connectedness among the members in a household. The present paper aimed to analyse the association of exposure to adverse childhood experiences and the aspects of present family relationship (i.e., cohesiveness, expressiveness and conflict) with marital attitudes and expectations in Indian young adults.
