Research has unequivocally shown that close relationships are strongly linked to health and well-being. This chapter reviews work that has focused on processes that promote high-quality relationships and the role that these processes play in health and well-being. It then discusses areas that are ripe for future research on positive processes in close relationships that are likely to shed light on important links to health and well-being.

Keywords:   close relationships, personal relationships, health, well-being
