Exploring the Relationship Between Hurtful Messages and Partner Attachment
Unformatted Document Text:  Hurt and Attachment 17 comparison to the null model, these increases are likely due to the small number of couples in the analysis. The research question pertained to the possible relationship between degree of hurt and attachment style. The results of the models predicting degree of hurt are provided in Table 3. Again, the null model shows significant variance between the couples. Additionally, the ICC (.44) indicates a substantial correlation between partners’ reports. The second model (Model 2b) shows that the secure dimension is positively related to degree of hurt reported. In other words, as secure tendencies of attachment increase, the degree of hurt reported during conflict interaction also increased. The preoccupied and dismissive-avoidant dimensions were negatively related to degree of hurt; however, avoidance was only marginally significant. Thus, as preoccupation or avoidance tendencies in attachment increase, the degree of hurt experienced decreases. The third model (Model 2c) shows that length of relationship is also marginally related to degree of hurt; the longer couples are together, the less hurt they are by their partners. The inclusion of relationship length in the model decreases the strength of the association between the preoccupied dimension and degree of hurt; however, this predictor is still marginally significant. Gender and level of commitment were included in additional models but were not related to degree of hurt when alone or added with the attachment dimensions. Again, the greater variance and deviance terms in Models 2b and 2c in comparison to the null model are likely due to the small number of couples included in the analysis. Thus, the significant tests of the predictor variables are likely the best indicators of model improvement; however, the findings should be interpreted cautiously.

Hurt and Attachment 17
comparison to the null model, these increases are likely due to the small number of couples in the
analysis.
The research question pertained to the possible relationship between degree of hurt and
attachment style. The results of the models predicting degree of hurt are provided in Table 3.
Again, the null model shows significant variance between the couples. Additionally, the ICC
(.44) indicates a substantial correlation between partners’ reports. The second model (Model 2b)
shows that the secure dimension is positively related to degree of hurt reported. In other words,
as secure tendencies of attachment increase, the degree of hurt reported during conflict
interaction also increased. The preoccupied and dismissive-avoidant dimensions were negatively
related to degree of hurt; however, avoidance was only marginally significant. Thus, as
preoccupation or avoidance tendencies in attachment increase, the degree of hurt experienced
decreases. The third model (Model 2c) shows that length of relationship is also marginally
related to degree of hurt; the longer couples are together, the less hurt they are by their partners.
The inclusion of relationship length in the model decreases the strength of the association
between the preoccupied dimension and degree of hurt; however, this predictor is still marginally
significant. Gender and level of commitment were included in additional models but were not
related to degree of hurt when alone or added with the attachment dimensions.
Again, the greater variance and deviance terms in Models 2b and 2c in comparison to the
null model are likely due to the small number of couples included in the analysis. Thus, the
significant tests of the predictor variables are likely the best indicators of model improvement;
however, the findings should be interpreted cautiously.
