Marital Stability, Mental Health, and Marital Satisfaction
Rogers, Lawrence S.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 35, 3, 342-348, Dec '70
A test of emotional stability and a marital satisfaction scale were administered to 50 couples seeking help with their marriage and to 50 couples with stable marriages. For the Stable group there was a significant relationship between marital satisfaction and emotional stability, but not for the Seeking Help group. No evidence was found to support the hypothesis that women who marry men with emotional problems are more unstable themselves, or that if one partner is emotionally unstable the other tends to become emotionally unstable.
