Conflict within romantic relationships is a common concern amongst college men and women in the United States. According to researchers (Cupach et al., 2009; Lloyd,1987), couples experience an estimated 2.3 conflicts per week. The intensity of conflicts exist within varying levels of agreement (collaboration, compromise, validation), and disagreement (arguing, hurtful behavior, incompatibility) (Guerrero, 2013). Examining the levels of agreement in couples’ conflicts will enrich new understanding, and encourage potential solutions for the psychological community.
