For Better and for Worse: Genes and Parenting Interact to Predict Future Behavior in Romantic Relationships
A study was done by Masarik, et al., (2014) for exploring the impact of genes and parenting on the behaviors in a romantic relationship. They had conducted interviews with single parent and two-parent families were done for assessing the behavior of the adults in their romantic relationships.
They had inspected the gene-environment correlations (rGE) between the genetic index of the target and the parenting. Two models were deduced for conducting regression analysis. First one was the hostility model and the second one was the positive-engagement model. The target participants were the G2 while they were observed interacting with their parents who were denoted as G1.
Independent observers rated the hostility and positive engagement by G1 and G2 during structured interaction tasks. An index was created for the hypothesized genetic plasticity by adding the G2=s allelic variation for the polymorphisms in five genes.
