Poster summary

Relationship dynamics are unique in emerging adulthood because many during this time of life feel the need to test out romantic relationships with many individuals before fully committing. Using predictors from other studies, this analysis used a succinct model and analyzed which predictors may be more important to consider than others. Sexual behaviors, alcohol use, and the number of children one has seem to be the most important factors to consider when it comes to romantic partner accumulation in emerging adulthood.
