Similarity in Locus of Control and Marital Satisfaction in College Students.
Chu, Lily; Bergsma, Harold
The locus of control among married couples was compared to that among their friends. Also compared was the relationship between married couples' locus of control and their reported marital satisfaction. No correlation was found between friends' locus of control, whereas a positive correlation was found between married couples' locus of control. The similarity of locus of control and marital satisfaction was negligible for the newlyweds; it became progressively more positive as years of marriage increased. (Author)
