1 Running head: COMMUNICATIONS ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY- DISSOLUTION OF RELATIONSHIPS Communications Annotated Bibliography- Dissolution of Relationships Erline Julian American Military University COMM 285 COMMUNICATIONS ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY- DISSOLUTION OF RELATIONSHIPS Brief Introduction Relationships are an integral part of human existence. Whether friendships, romantic relationships, parental relationships, or any other form of relationships, such associations between persons and people play a critical role in satisfying social needs of individuals- provide a sense of belonging, companionship, and appreciation from others. It is, therefore, worth noting and appreciating that relationships are built on how people exchange ideas- about each other, the world around them, and any other subject matter that is part of the relationship in general. This school of thought makes communication in relationships a major determinant of the success or lack thereof (dissolution) of any relationship. Some go as far as stating that communication is the fulcrum of any relationship, the glue that keeps everything together, without efficient utilization of communication techniques, dissolution of the relationship is almost certain. This bibliography is specific on the dissolution of romantic relationships because it is the most thought-after, desired and demanding form of relationship. The highly publicized and attention is given to such kinds of relationships play a critical role in formulating theories and paradigms regarding the same. Communication in relationships, the specific and abstract methods of achieving effective communication is an important determinant and indicator of success of any relationship. Lack of effective communication techniques and strategies has the potential to kill any relationship. Annotated Bibliography Taylor Dovala, Matt Hawrilenko, and James V. Cordova (2018). Implicit Theories of Relationships and Conflict Communication Patterns in Romantic Relationships: A Dyadic Perspective 2 COMMUNICATIONS ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY- DISSOLUTION OF RELATIONSHIPS 3 The first article mainly scrutinizes dyadic perspectives and perceptions that essentially contribute to the dissolution of any relationship, at least, as far as communication is concerned. The article suggests that dyadic beliefs influence communication patterns among people in relationships, and the same has a direct determinant on the success of the same. According to the authors, individuals that demonstrate destiny beliefs as the main influencers of relationship outcomes tend to avoid conflict interactions and conflict resolution through communication. On the other hand, individuals demonstrating compliance with growth beliefs in romantic relationships tend to be more open and willing to take part in constructive communication, more so in the case of conflict resolution. Justin A. Lavner, Benjamin R. Karney, and Thomas N. Bradbury (2016). Does Couples' Communication Predict Marital Satisfaction, or Does Marital Satisfaction Predict Communication? Through the article, the authors try to compare the main bearing or determining factor in regards to satisfaction in marriage relationships. They tried to determine whether the communication is either affected by or affects marriage satisfaction. According to the authors, there is a direct link between effective communication within a relationship (marriage setting) and satisfaction with the same. Openness, as presented in manner and content of communication, more so in marriages through apologies, listening, and effectively discerning a partner’s point of view, more so during marriage is an important determinant of marriage satisfaction. The COMMUNICATIONS ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY- DISSOLUTION OF RELATIONSHIPS 4 communication patterns and techniques used by partners- cuddling, exposing vulnerabilities through words and actions induce a sense of security and acceptance in partners, and the long run enhances the chances of survival of the relationship. Nickola C. Overall and James K. McNulty (2017). What type of communication during conflict is beneficial for intimate relationships? This article tries to decipher what is considered effective communication patterns and practices in relationships, more so romantic relationships. Through the article, the authors discuss how the main aim of communication during conflict resolution is to invoke or induce a perception of cooperation as opposed to the opposition during relationships. Achieving the said aim is one of the surest ways of increasing the life of any relationship. The article discusses the communication techniques and practices that are geared towards facilitating this important perception. The reason for this main aim, according to the authors, is its potential to instill a sense of intimacy and companionship, which is an important ingredient of success of any relationship. Lindsey M.Rodriguez, Camilla S, Overup, Robert E. Wickham, C. Raymond Knee, and Amber B. Amspoker (2016). Communication with former romantic partners and current relationship outcomes among college students The article seeks to examine the paradigms surrounding maintaining communication with previous partners and the effect the same has on new relationships. The study reveals that only 40% of the participants (hence assumed COMMUNICATIONS ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY- DISSOLUTION OF RELATIONSHIPS 5 to be representative of people in active relationships) communicate with their partner. The study reveals that communication with a previous partner more so on a friendly level invokes comparison with current partners. It also reveals that in the case of past partners that do not communicate, the perceptions, views, and manner of communication is most likely to be transferred and replicated to new relationships, which might, in turn, harm the present relationship. Hana Yoo, Suzanne Bartle-Haring, Randal D. Day, and Rashimi Gangamma (2013). Couple Communication, Emotional and Sexual Intimacy, and Relationship Satisfaction The authors in this article reiterate the point of view and perception of Lavner and company. However, the main differentiating aspect of this article is the apparent attention the authors pay to the indicators of relationship success apart from longevity or dissolution of the relationship in question- emotional and sexual satisfaction. It analyses the intrinsic effects of effective communication, and techniques used in achieving the same on each of the indicators of relationship success, that in turn have a direct bearing on the life of the relationship.

Dissolution of Relationships
Relationships comprise an integral part of human existence. Humans develop
romantic, parental, or any other form of relationship throughout their lives, with the

the relationship by making it easier for individuals to deal with conflict and help in the
building of a stronger and healthier relationship.
Human beings require optimal physical and psychological wellbeing in their lives that
can be achieved through the formation and maintenance of social bonds. However, most
social bonds that are temporary and voluntary end at some point. Marriage is voluntary social
bonds that people get to at some point in life, but not all marriages last its entirety with some
ending early. Some marriages end in divorce, and more significant percentages of
relationships are dissolved. Communication is essential throughout the marriage phase as
partners share feelings and emotions through communication in the marriage (Rodriguez,
