Abstract:

An evolutionary framework is used to develop a model of relational functioning among close relational partners. The model proposed focuses on the collaborative nature of close relationships and attempts to highlight two adaptive mechanisms important in creating non-zero sum outcomes among highly interdependent parties. First, our model emphasizes the importance of reciprocity in creating mutually beneficial outcomes through games of exchange (i.e., resource exchange). Additionally, we articulate how the preference for similarity would have been useful when creating non-zero sum rewards through games of coordination. In particular, we focus on the unique role that shared interests and mutual knowledge play when individuals attempt to pursue common goals through joint activity. The implications of our model are discussed with respect to a host of relational issues ranging from uncertainty reduction to satisfaction and commitment.
