BOTHA, Anja; VAN DEN BERG, Henriëtte S.  e  VENTER, Chris A.V.. The relationship between family-of-origin and marital satisfaction. Health SA Gesondheid (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.1, pp.60-66. ISSN 2071-9736.

The aim of this article is to explore the relationship between marital satisfaction and family-of-origin factors amongst couples with children. Locke and Wallace's Marital Adjustment Test and the McMaster Family Assessment Device were used to measure marital satisfaction and family-of-origin factors respectively. Family-of-origin factors, such as problem solving, communication, roles, affective involvement and behavioural control were investigated. The sample consisted of 47 married couples. A significant relationship was found between roles and affective responsiveness as family-of-origin factors and marital satisfaction, while roles as a family-of-origin factor played an important role in the wife as well as her husbands' marital satisfaction. The findings emphasise the importance of functioning in the family-of-origin as a potential determinant of future marital satisfaction.

Palavras-chave : family-of-origin; marital satisfaction; Locke and Wallace's Marital Adjustment Test; McMaster Family Assessment Device; wellness.
