We calculate strong-coupling corrections to the 3P2 neutron-star-matter Ginzburg-Landau functional including spin-orbit and central forces. Based on a two-parameter approximation for the spin-orbit scattering amplitude and typical estimates for the neutron-matter Landau parameters we conclude that the most likely equilibrium phase of 3P2 neutron matter is described by a unitary order parameter. Better calculations of neutron-matter parameters, particularly the spin-orbit scattering amplitude, would allow a stronger conclusion.
