Finally, it is necessary to continue to integrate theory and methodology in our research on human sexuality. As pointed out by Harvey, Christensen, and Mc- Clintock ( 1983) in a detailed discussion of research issues in the study of close relationships, "theory and method are not independent. Theoretical development often generates new methodological strategies for Studying relationships. And methodologies often produce new information which stimulates theoretical development" (p. 58).
I wish to thank John DeLamater, Susan Sprecher, and Robert Graham for their valuable time and useful comments on a draft of this chapter.
