Abstract

This study examined the role of dyadic power, marital status, and face concerns in shaping the politeness strategies dating and married partners use to express complaints toward one another. Two hundred sixty-one romantically involved individuals completed a survey through Amazon Mechanical Turk. Power was a more salient predictor of politeness strategies for dating than for married individuals, and concern for partners’ face (but not one’s own) mediated several of the associations between power and complaint strategies.
