Kayser, Karen
American Journal of Family Therapy, v24 n1 p83-88 Spr 1996
Describes a self-report scale measuring levels of disaffection toward one's spouse. A questionnaire containing the Marital Disaffection Scale (MDS) and other disaffection measures of marital happiness was administered to 76 spouses. Results indicated good criterion-related validity, discriminant validity, and interitem reliability. Findings support use of the MDS for assessing spouses' feelings regarding partners and planning appropriate interventions in conjoint therapy. (KW)
