Do Marital Conventionalization Scales Measure a Social Desirability Response Bias? A Confirmatory Factor Analysis.
Fowers, Blaine J.; Applegate, Brooks
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v57 n1 p237-41 Feb 1995
Analyzes Edmonds' Marital Conventionalization Scale. Confirmatory factor analytic results with 101 married participants did not support his conceptualization for males or females. Results raise questions about the use of marital conventionalization scales as validity scales in marital quality measurement. Idealistic distortion is suggested as a more accurate term. (Author/JPS)
