Abstract

The current study examines privacy within the marital context. Spouses (N=83) completed self-report measures assessing their perceptions of privacy intrusive behaviors, behaviors they would select to restore privacy, and marital satisfaction. Overall, persons expect privacy violations from their spouses, although psychological and informational violations appear less appropriate. Less satisfied couples show a greater need to restore privacy after a privacy violation takes place. Implications for strategy selection are discussed.
