SARDINHA, Aline; FALCONE, Eliane Mary de Oliveira  e  FERREIRA, Maria Cristina. The relations between marital satisfaction and social skills perceived in the spouse. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.3, pp.395-402. ISSN 1806-3446.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-37722009000300013.

This study investigated the association between the social skills perceived by the spouse and marital satisfaction. Fifty couples (n=100), aged from 29 to 69 and with relationship lasting from seven to 38 years, were asked to fill in the Marital Satisfaction Scale, the Marital Social Skills Inventory and the Marital Empathy Questionnaire. Multiple regression analysis revealed that spouse's empathy was strongly correlated with marital satisfaction, followed by the expression of feelings and defense of own rights. The number of offspring was inversely correlated with satisfaction, and women were perceived by their partners as more empathic. The presence of social skills, particularly empathy, seems to be facilitators of marital satisfaction. Interventions directed to the development of social skills may be useful in the treatment of distressed couples.

Palavras-chave : marital satisfaction; marriage; social skills; empathy.
