Abstract : The synthesis of the self and other under varying conditions of commitment between a man and a woman (dating versus marriage) was examined in terms of self-other images described by means of geometric configurations of symbols representing the man and woman and significant others. Married as opposed to dating couples indicated greater social unity, greater inclusion, and an identity as a group which excluded the parents. The female member also tended to value the man-woman dyad less than the male. Extensions of the approach are suggested with regard to intergroup perception. (Author)
