A variety of outcome variables were examined, including the number of sexual partners that individuals reported when they were 23 years old, aggressive behavior at age 23, criminal activities and behavior at age 23, and age of first intercourse. They found that one of the strongest predictors of sexual and risky behavior at age 23 was having an unpredictable environment between the ages of 0 and 5 years. Specifically, people who had less predictable and rapidly changing environments early in life exhibited a faster life history strategy at age 23 by having more sexual partners, as well as engaging in more aggressive and delinquent behaviors.

In young and middle adulthood, that includes functioning in romantic relationships. These analyses revealed that early caregiving experiences predicted social competence in an enduring manner over time. Specifically, children who had supportive caregiving experiences early in life were more likely than those who did not to have well-functioning romantic relationships in adulthood.
