Attachment theory has long been a theoretical framework for addressing individual differences regarding well-being in romantic relationships. Forms of concern have also received growing attention regarding relational well-being and satisfaction. In the current study, we comprised an adult sample and investigated a theoretically driven model in which forms of concern mediate the covariance between attachment orientation and relational romantic authenticity and satisfaction. Our results largely support our hypotheses and we discuss how they underscore the importance of the caregiving experience within romantic relationships.
