Knapp’s Phases of Relationship

As a couple transitions from the Merge period, they might start to experience greater intimacy and begin to reveal more about their lives. During this step, couples discuss their habits, home ideas, career objectives and potential aspirations. Effective communication skills will help people manage disagreements and overcome potential hurdles during this stage, such as financial difficulties or a health problems.

The handful begins to spend more time together and promote more personal tricks during the Intimacy Stage. The handful is checking to see if they are long-term agreeable at this point. In order to determine whether a partner is the right choice for them, they may use characteristics like compassion, friendliness, and charisma.

The partners has already made a decision to stay together for the long-term, and they might choose to get married or have a vow renewal ceremony. This is the final stage in Knapp’s hypothesis of interactions, but numerous newlyweds do not reach this stage in their marriage. Rather, they may decide to survive jointly or type a non- passionate partnership like cohabitation, a platonic friendship or monogamous relationship. Regardless of the type of partnership, this penultimate stage requires a level of intimacy and longevity that can be demonstrated by an news or some other form of public exclusivity. Although romantic relationships are the foundation of Knapp’s theory of relationships, several people who are not romantically involved can also form embracing unions and lasting relationships.
