We propose that commitment is a prerequisite in highly satisfied couples, fostering relationship maintenance behavior such as positive dyadic coping. Method: Structural equation models identified the relationship between commitment, relationship satisfaction, and dyadic coping with data from 201 heterosexual couples with an average relationship length of 34 years. Results: The common fate model confirmed that relationship satisfaction mediated the effects between commitment and dyadic coping on a latent dyadic level. Additional analyses revealed that women’s satisfaction was mainly responsible for mediating effects between both partners’ commitment and dyadic coping. Conclusions: Findings support the essentiality of commitment for couples’ maintenance strategies and for consistency in long-term relationships.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Nussbeck, Fridtjof W.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Backes, Sabine</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Peter-Wight, Melanie</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bradbury, Thomas N.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Bodenmann, Guy</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:title>Commitment and Dyadic Coping in Long-Term Relationships</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Nussbeck, Fridtjof W.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Landis, Marion</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Landis, Marion</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Brandstätter, Veronika</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Bradbury, Thomas N.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Peter-Wight, Melanie</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Backes, Sabine</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Sutter-Stickel, Dorothee</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2018-11-15T12:19:49Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
