abstract

  • Well-being and mental health are directly associated with relationship status particularly in the context of relatedness and support. A key factor in relationship functioning is emotional arousal. We examine the interplay between emotional arousal manifested through acoustic and physiological cues and its association to relationship satisfaction. We propose a dynamical systems model to infer the within-and across-modality as well as the between-partner relations. Our results suggest that increased emotional regulation is negatively associated with relationship satisfaction and indicate that the proposed system consists a viable framework for analyzing such multimodal interrelations within romantic partners.
