Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between communicative responses to romantic jealousy and commitment. Two hundred and three participants who have experienced jealousy in a romantic relationship were recruited from the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa. Each participant completed a self-report survey that measured the communicative responses to jealousy and commitment. A series of Pearson Product Moment correlations were computed. The results of the study suggested that commitment was positively associated with two of the three positive communicative responses to romantic jealousy. On the other hand, commitment was negatively associated with two of the eight negative communicative responses to romantic jealousy. The implications, limitation, and direction of future research were discussed.
