Relationship - Ambiguity reigns when closeness falters

Researcher's state there is a correlation linking intimacy and relationship ambiguity. If I have understood their conclusion properly, this behaviour outline is relevant to romantic relationships outside marriage or before marriage, (non- marital romantic relationship is the phrase they employ.)


"A study, published in the journal Personal Relationships, evaluated associations between intimacy and relational uncertainty and found that fluctuations in perceptions of relationships are meaningful aspects of non-marital romantic relationships."


I believe this finding will hold true in a conjugal relationship.
