The results of Pearson correlation coefficient and regression showed that communication beliefs and all its components have a significant positive relationship with pessimistic expectations and idealistic expectations of marriage and a significant negative relationship with realistic expectations of marriage(p<0/05). In addition, among attitudes toward marriage, pessimistic and idealistic attitudes have a significant positive relationship with pessimistic and idealistic expectations, and optimistic and realistic attitudes have a significant negative relationship with pessimistic expectations.
