Materials The Personal Assessment of Intimacy in Relationships (PAIR) (Schaefer & Olson, 1981) was used to determine the level of intimacy that participants perceive in their relationships.
Close friends and first-degree relatives may substantiate society's norm of homogamy and discourage the interracial couple to get married.
These and other factors can impact the intercultural relationship to the point of dissolution.
Results The data were first analyzed by correlating the two demographic variables that are not independent variables (age and gender) with the PAIR subscales.
Results demonstrated that the two demographic variables did significantly correlate with several of the PAIR subscales.
Intracultural relationships are those in which the participants possess similar cultures, religions, ethnicity, and race and are engaged in a dating relationship (homogenous relationships).
