Abstract of the Article
This study reviews the development of the Marital Satisfaction Scale (MSS). The MSS was designed to assess one’s level of satisfaction toward his or her own marriage. Marital satisfaction was defined as an attitude of greater or lesser favorability toward one’s own marital relationship. Measurement of the perception of one’s marriage by means of an attitude scale was the focus of the effort.
Design objectives for developing the measure were to generate a new set of items, to utilize a single-item style with an easy scoring system, to guard against contamination by marital conventionalization and social desirability, and to provide items that could reflect attitudinal change likely to occur as a result of the marital intervention. Research results indicate that the instrument has very high internal consistency, sufficient test-retest reliability and validity, and a low degree of contamination with social desirability.
