This study compared 150 wives of alcoholics with an equal number of women married to non-alcoholics. Communication apprehension and the assessment of danger in their marital relationships were the dimensions investigated using standardized instruments. The findings indicate greater levels of apprehension and danger perceived by women married to alcoholics than in the reference group. This indicates areas that warrant therapeutic intervention while dealing with marital dyads that involve an alcoholic husband to improve their interactional dynamics.
