It was the purpose of the present study to cast some light on the question as to whether or not certain types of dating behavior are related to marriage orientation. This researcher has made the assumption that as college students advance from the freshman to the senior class, they become more marriage oriented in their dating patterns. The figures obtained from the registrar’s office for the present study tended to support the above generalization. An examination of the married students enrolled, however, revealed a marked degree of marriage orientation present from the freshman through the senior class. The preceding statement was supported by the proportion of married students at each class level. The researcher, therefore, desired to study the problem of marriage orientation at each of the undergraduate class levels at Fort Hays Kansas State College.
