The aim of this study was to examine the role of general intimate relationship beliefs and behaviours in intimate relationship in predicting its quality. The study was conducted on a sample of 216 couples in heterosexual intimate relationship aged 18 to 35 years. As the measuring instrument we used The Relationship Beliefs Scale, Inventory of Affection and Antagonism in Marriage and Quality of Marriage Index. The results show that the importance of intimacy as a factor for a successful relationship for both partners is a predictor of their relationship quality. The men’s importance of intimacy predicts their relationship quality by mediation of women’s affection and antagonism evaluation and the relationship quality of women by mediation of men’s affection and antagonism evaluation. The women’s importance of intimacy contributes their relationship quality by mediation of men’s affection evaluation, and relationship quality of men by mediation of women’s affection mediation. Summarized, we concluded that that the more partners believe in importance of intimacy the more will they behave more affective and less antagonistically towards each other and assess their relationship more qualitative.
