ATTITUDE, DESIRE, AND FREQUENCY OF EXTRAMARITAL INVOLVEMENT AS CORRELATED WITH SUBJECT CHARACTERISTICS
Abstract:A study of desire for, frequency of, and attitudes towards extramarital involvement (EMI) was conducted, using 100 male and female college students ranging in age from 19 to 55. Demographic data gathered on subjects included age, sex, occupation, college major, current and past marital status and number of children, frequency of extramarital sexual involvement, and level of desire for extramarital sexual involvement. The subjects were administered a social desirability scale, a measure of conventional morality, and extramarital attitudinal scale. There were significant correlations between desire, frequency, and attitude. The response to “number of times married” had a significant effect on EMI desire. Predictive factors other than desire, frequency, and attitude were number of marriages, sex of the respondent, and the social desirability scale.
