Pavlos Ioannidis  | Anna Alvanou
Abstract: The present study aims to preliminary examine the psychometric properties of the QUAlity of Romantic RELationships Scale (QUARRELS). In two studies involving a total of 950 individuals across Europe, it was revealed that the QUARRELS is a tool of good overall reliability (a=.94). It comprises of a set of 6 reliable factors (Support, Emotional Intimacy, Sexual Intimacy, Rapport, Pacifism & Trust) and a composite factor of a total quality of romantic relationship score. Indications of construct validity were provided after revealing significant negative correlations between adult attachment dimensions from (-.18 to-.53) and both adult attachment anxiety and avoidance shared significant negative correlations with overall quality of romantic relationships (r=-.46) and (r=-.59). The QUARRELS has promising qualities which could be useful both in future research and in clinical settings.
