They emphasized that normative information is not appropriate for the PAIR instrument because it is the discrepancy between the ideal and actual levels for each dimension for husband and wife that are important and should serve as a basis for counseling work. Little guidance is provided, however, on how to evaluate the discrepancies between real and ideal levels for husband and wife other than a statement that a discrepancy of less than 5 points between the husband and wife 's perceptions is probably inconsequential.
