What I Found:
The Break-Up (2006)
"The social exchange perspective takes as its analytic focus this aspect of social life: the benefits that people obtain from, contribute to, social interaction and the opportunity structures and interdependencies that govern these exchanges" (Molm 2006:24).
The “social exchange theory attempts to account for the emergence, persistence, and demise of sustained social relationships” (Friedman 1987:55).
