Examines the role of perceived adequacy of social support provided by spouses for marital and individual functioning. Perceived support adequacy was correlated in the expected direction with marital quality, depressive symptomatology, and perceived stress. Hierarchical multiple regressions indicated perceived support adequacy accounts for significant unique variance in marital quality, depressive symptomatology, and perceived stress. Limitations of the study are discussed. (BF)
