Abstract
Provedeno je istraživanje inspirirano modelom idealnih standarda, koji se bavi sadržajem i funkcijama standarda u bliskim vezama. Prema modelu, ljudi imaju stalno dostupne idealne standarde, koji se odnose na tri osnovne dimenzije partnera (toplinapovjerenje, vitalnost-atraktivnost i status-resurs) i dvije dimenzije veze (intimnost-odanost i strast), s kojima uspoređuju aktualnog partnera i vezu, a stupanj podudarnosti ili diskrepancije služi objašnjenju, evaluaciji i regulaciji veze, partnera i sebe kao partnera. Budući da se nalazi o idealnim standardima i (ne)podudarnosti između idealnih i aktualnih značajki u literaturi često interpretiraju u terminima očekivanja, prava i zasluga u vezi, cilj ovog istraživanja bio je ispitati percepciju prava i zasluga u vezi, koja, kao percepcija onoga što osoba smatra da zaslužuje u vezi, odražava stupanj u kojem pojedinac od romantičnog partnera očekuje zadovoljenje vlastitih relacijskih potreba, želja i fantazija. Prethodna istraživanja i tumačenja sugeriraju distinkciju između dvije šire kategorije prava: adekvatnog, (asertivnog) i neadekvatnih (pretjeranih i ograničenih) percipiranih prava u vezi. Provedeno je korelacijsko istraživanje na prigodnom uzorku od 228 ispitanika koji su popunili mjere percepcije idealnih i aktualnih značajki partnera i veze te percepcije prava u vezi. Osim latentnih struktura ovih mjera, analizirane su razlike u rezultatima s obzirom na spol ispitanika i aktualni status veze. Analiza korelacija između rezultata na mjerama percepcije prava u vezi i značajki partnera i veze ukazala je na povezanost aktualnih/ idealnih standarda s određenim formama prava u vezi. Podudarnost vlastitih aktualnih i idealnih značajki je povezana s većim očekivanjima i manjom inhibicijom vlastitih prava u vezi. Podudarnosti aktualnih i idealnih značajki partnera i veze su negativno povezane s usmjerenošću na negativno. Asertivna prava su generalno pozitivno povezana s (idealnom) toplinom, dok je osjetljivost u negativnoj korelaciji s aktualnim procjenama partnera i veze.

Parallel abstract (English)
The conducted research was inspired by the Ideal Standards Model, which deals with the content and functions of standards in close relationships. According to the model, people hold chronically accessible ideal standards, which refer to three basic partner dimensions (Warmth-Trustworthiness, Vitality-Attractiveness and Status-Resources) and two relationship dimensions (Intimacy-Loyalty and Passion), with which they compare their actual partner and relationship. The degree of consistency/ discrepancy serves to explain, evaluate and regulate the relationship, partner and themselves as a partner. Since the findings about ideal standards and (non)consistencies between ideal and actual features in literature are often interpreted in terms of expectations, rights and deservingness in relationships, this research aimed to examine the sense of relational entitlement, which, as the subjective perception of what one deserves in a relationship, reflects the extent to which an individual expects his or her relational wishes, needs and fantasies to be fulfilled by a partner. Previous research and theorizing suggested distinction between two broader categories of entitlement: adequate, (assertive) and inadequate (excessive and restricted) sense of relational entitlement. Correlational study was conducted on a convenience sample of 228 participants, who completed measures of ideal and actual partner and relationship features and sense of relational entitlement. Apart from the latent structures of these measures, the differences on results regarding gender and current relationship status were analyzed. Analysis of correlations between results on measures of sense of relational entitlement and partner and relationship features suggested that actual/ ideal standards are related to some forms of relational entitlement. Consistency between actual and ideal self features is related to higher Expectations and less Restricted entitlement. Consistencies between actual and ideal features of the partner and relationship are negatively related to Vigilance on negative aspects. Assertive rights are generally positively related to (ideal) Warmth-Trustworthiness, while Sensitivity is in a negative relationship with actual partner and relationship perceptions.
