Equity theory is a theory of romantic relationships proposed by Hatfield et al., which views it as an extension of social exchange theory. It suggests people are content in their relationship if the benefits are roughly equal to the costs. Relationships that lack equity (where someone is putting in more than they are getting out of it) are more likely to be associated with dissatisfaction.
