T. Joel Wade

Professor of Psychology

Bucknell University

The Evolutionary Psychology of Breaking up and Making up

October 20th, 2014

Cosponsored with Interpersonal Violence Prevention (IVP)

Academic A G008

5:10 to 6:15 pm (doors open at 5:00 pm)

Abstract

Prior evolutionary theory based research has not appropriately examined how deficits in sexual access and emotional access affect mate expulsion decisions. Additionally, evolutionary theory based research has not examined how emotional commitment and access, and sexual access affect reconciliation decisions. The research presented realistically examines the role of sexual access and emotional access in mate expulsion decisions, and examines the role of emotional commitment and access and sexual access in reconciliation decisions. A lack of emotional access was hypothesized to be more likely to lead women to end a relationship while a lack of sexual access was expected to be more likely to lead men to end a relationship. Additionally, women were expected to rate actions related to emotional commitment and access as more effective reconciliation behaviors while men were expected to rate actions related to sexual access as more effective reconciliation behaviors. The results were consistent with the hypotheses are discussed in terms of evolutionary theory and prior research.
