The study investigated marital stress and extraversion personality as predictors of job satisfaction among married women teachers in Enugu, Nigeria. One hundred and eighty eight married women teachers in Enugu, Nigeria participated in the study. Three instruments were used to gather information in this study. They included marital stress inventory (MSI), big five inventory (BFI) sub-scale measuring extroversion personality and Minnesota satisfaction questionnaire (MSQ). Mean, standard deviation, Pearson's correlation and multiple regression analysis were employed to analyse the data. The results of the study showed that the predictor variable marital stress showed no significant prediction to job satisfaction (B = 0.074, p < 0.05). The results also showed that extraversion personality was a significant predictor of job satisfaction (B = 0.28, p < 0.001). It was recommended that employers of labour should encourage orientation programmes to improve on employees' personality dimension in the workplace
