Abstract

The current study examined the association among characteristics of the marital relationship, family environment, and young adults' conflict interactions with parents. Reports from 124 17-to 20-yr.-olds indicated tactics used during conflicts with parents were associated with perceived magnitude of interparental conflict and family cohesion. Further, reports of frequency of conflict with parents were associated with young adults' use of aggressive conflict tactics. The current study indicates how young adults' perceptions of family adaptability and cohesion moderated the association between perceptions of interparental conflict and their reports of using aggressive tactics during conflict with parents. Findings are discussed in terms of implications of the associations among the marital relationship, family environment, and young adults' relationships with parents.
