Abstract

We examined alcohol use concordance (respondent and partner alcohol use) and relationship quality as predictors of condom non-use among adolescent women. Both variables were significant independent predictors of condom non-use. These results suggest that both the individual's and her partner's behaviors should be taken into consideration in research and clinical practice.
