The stepwise regression analysis revealed that coupte-camuntcst ion. personality traits and education are the most powerful predictors of birth control attitudes. Likewise. coup7e communication and education are found to be strong predictors of contraceptive behaviour. ~NOVA resu7ts also indicated that couple-communication.personality traits and education affect. equally. both birth control attitudes and contraceptive behaviour. Finally. the multiple partial correlation analysis revealed that couple-cOfTTnunicationand personality traits interchangeably act as intermediate variables.
