    Exploring An Evolutionary Theory Of Jealousy Through Sexual And Emotional Infidelity

    2357 words, 10 pages

    Abstract Evolutionary theories of jealousy, popularised in psychological circles by the research of Buss, Buunk and their colleagues, have aroused criticism by other researchers claiming that the design of these studies was confounded by a number of factors. This study in particular will test the ‘double-shot’ hypothesis of De Steno & Salovey in order to ascertain whether a 1992 study by Buss et al. still holds true when more rigorously tested on a larger population. Three questions regarding the activation of jealously via sexual and emotional infidelities will be considered in order to perf

An Equal Pay Act, which came into effect in 1963, guaranteed equal pay for equal work in the United States. However a sex-based gap in earnings still persists with a difference of women’s pay at about three fifths that of men’s (Newman, 2006).
