Relationships between adult attachment styles, relationship satisfaction, and sleep quality
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between adult attachment styles, relationship satisfaction, and sleep quality. A total of 483 participants who were in a romantic relationship at the time of the study were used for the final analysis of the study. Past research has shown relationship satisfaction to be a significant predictor variable of sleep quality, therefore, relationship satisfaction was held constant in the analysis. A hierarchical regression analysis found that relationship satisfaction was a significant predictor variable for sleep quality in this study as well. The regression analysis also showed that anxious attachment was a significant predictor variable for sleep quality while controlling for relationship satisfaction, however, avoidant attachment was not uniquely associated with sleep quality. These findings provide additional research regarding how adult attachment styles and relationship satisfaction can contribute to overall sleep quality.
