Notes

Abstract: Research concerning marital satisfaction indicates that personality, humor, and repair during conflict are highly influential variables. This study investigates the interactions between these three variables and the role that they play in determining marital satisfaction. A sample of 66 males and 71 females was examined for this study. Significant interactions were found between the three variables of personality, humor, and conflict repair, but while humor was found to be a significant factor in conflict repair, not all the relationships were as expected. Correlation analyses revealed significant relations between all three variables and marital satisfaction, although several were in different directions than expected. Finally, while personality, humor, and conflict repair of the husbands were significant predictors of marital satisfaction for both themselves and their wives, none of the variables for the wives were found to be significant. Explanations for results and directions for future research are offered.
