Summary

An analysis of the extraverbal communication processes in newlywed couples is described. The aim of the research was to discover whether certain extraverbal communications are related to happiness in a marriage and, eventually, to its duration. Among specific significant findings with regard to behavior ratings were: (1) chair distance was negatively related to other-touching, indicating that the closer the couple sat together, the more likely it was that they also used gestures touching each other and were touching for longer periods of time; (2) eye contact was the variable which correlated best with all the other behavioral ratings; (3) open position of arms was unrelated to open position of legs (open position of arms appeared to be more related to interpersonal closeness than open position of legs); and (4) if a person lists a topic of conflict, he means to say it is also a source of unhappiness to him. The authors conclude that they demonstrated that self ratings of marital happiness show a clear relationship to the use of subtle cues, such as eye contact and touching, which indicated personal closeness.
