Humour Style and Relationship Satisfaction in Homosexual Couples

27 February 2018

Previous research has suggested that romantic couples who have similar humour styles have better relationship satisfaction. However, the research within this area has only placed focus on heterosexual couples. We are interested in investigating the homosexual population to see if the results obtained will differ, depending on an individual’s sexual orientation.
