Structural frameworks highlight the role of individual traits in describing the forming of romantic relationships. Drawing greatly from theories of trade (England and Farkas 1986), previous research implies that partnerвЂ™s trade on the individual traits ( ag e.g., wide range, training, real attractiveness) within the mate market (Blackwell and Lichter 2004; Lichter 1990). The presumption of the framework is the fact that people seek lovers most abundant in desirable traits and the traits desired in a mate are gendered. As an example, physical attractiveness is certainly respected in females while economic resources have actually usually been valued in guys (Sassler and Joyner 2011). As people who are many pair that is desirable with one another, those who find themselves less desirable end up getting partners who will be comparable when it comes to desirability (Becker 1981; England et al. 1986; Fu 2001; Qian and Lichter 2007; Qian 1997; Rosenfeld 2005; Schwartz and Mare 2005) or find yourself unpartnered entirely (Cawley, Joyner, and Sobal 2006).
