Attachment in adulthood and the quality of close relationships in the light of selected study results

The attachment theory is one of the more significant and empirically confirmed theories, which provides a relatively full explanation of the specificity of close relationships. Continuators of Bowlby (2007), while making a significant contribution to the development of research in this area, contributed to the knowledge of how people with variously shaped attachment styles function.
In the presented study we analyze relationships of attachment, with such variables as: emotional control, communication, preference as regards the partner, perception of the partner, as well as aggression and violence towards the partner.
This article presents empirical evidence that safely, confidently attached people (whose avoidance and anxiety level is low), have the ability to function in relationships, increasing the chance of success in a relationship and the sense of contentment of the partners. In contrast, individuals with insecure attachment patterns may be more likely to experience difficulty in a close relationship
