It is inevitable that partners in close relationships will eventually behave badly. How the personreacts when his/her partner has engaged in a potentially destructive act, is an important indicator of how succesful the relationship is. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between attachment, promotion- and prevention-focused relationship behavior, and accommodation strategies. 973 people aged between 18 and 49, who were involved in a heterosexual dating relationship, participated in the study. The following instruments were used in the online survey: Sociodemographic Questionnaire, Accommodation Scale, Modified version of Brennan’s Experiences in Close Relationships Inventory, and Regulatory Focus in Relationships Scale.There was a significant correlation between accommodation, attachment and regulatory focus. Attachment and regulatory focus were significant predictors of both constructive and destructive accommodation strategies, but some results differed along gender lines.
