Cemaliye DIREKTÖR, Cahit NURI

Abstract


This study aimed to investigate the effects of parental acceptance-rejection on infidelity and the role of different types of perceived parental rejection and gender on these variables. The sample group comprised of men and women between the ages of 18 and 37, who had been in a romantic relationship for at least one year at the time of the study. The group consisted of 163 participants from Near East University. The Parental Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaire and Infidelity Tendency Questionnaire were administered to the sample group. The collected data was then entered into the SPSS and was analysed using t-test, one-way ANOVA and regression analysis. The mean infidelity score for men was significantly higher than that for women. As the length of relationship increased, the infidelity tendency scores decreased. The results showed that perceived aggression from the mother/father and control from the mother were predictors of infidelity tendency.
