Healthy Attachment, Commitment, Early Marriage, Marriage, Bonding, CREATE
Data from the CREATE study were analyzed to observe how healthy, strong attachment affects commitment levels in newly married couples. Results indicate that there is a positive and statistically significant association between attachment and commitment. The other control variables did not have a statistically significant effect on the dependent variable: commitment. The R2 for each of the models suggests that attachment explains a substantial portion of the variation in commitment.
The Annual Mary Lou Fulton Mentored Research Conference showcases some of the best student research from the College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences. The mentored learning program encourages undergraduate students to participate in hands-on and practical research under the direction of a faculty member. Students create these posters as an aide in presenting the results of their research to the public, faculty, and their peers.
