Abstract


The aim of the study was to analyse psychometric
properties of the Marital/Relationship Satisfaction Scale
(MRS) developed for the purpose of this research, and its
association with other well-being indicators. Additionally,
differences in well-being between participants who were
married or in a relationship and single participants, and
gender differences were tested. The sample consisted of
1087 adult internet users from Croatia. We assessed
general well-being, satisfaction with specific life domains,
marital/relationship satisfaction and demographic
variables. MRS proved to be a reliable single factor
instrument which correlated moderately with all well-being
indices, but highest with satisfaction with love life and family
relations. Men and women did not differ regarding MRS.
Participants who were married or in a relationship showed
higher levels of well-being.
