Abstract
This study compared two types of relationships commonly found in emerging adulthood. Thirty emerging adults who had both a roommate with whom they were friends prior to living together as well as one other close friend completed the Network of Relationships Inventory – Social Provisions Version (NRI-SPV). The NRI-SPV assesses levels of relationship quality and conflict by asking respondents to rate questions in these two domains. Results indicated that emerging adults experience significantly higher levels of conflict in their roommate relationship than in their other friendship. In addition, there was a trend for relationship quality to be lower in the roommate relationship. The findings demonstrate the need for further examination and understanding of the potential impact of the friendships during emerging adulthood. Implications and future research steps are discussed.
