THE INFLUENCE OF SOCIAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ATTITUDES OF MODERN SPOUSES
ON THEIR MARRIAGE SATISFACTION


SUMMARY:

The present study analyzes the problem of finding the relationship between the level of marriage satisfaction and the peculiarities of the social and psychological attitudes of modern spouses. The motivational orientation of modern spouses has been analyzed. It has been shown that the highest level of marriage satisfaction is observed in “families with adolescents”, the lowest level – in “mature families”. The interpersonal dealings between the spouses have been revealed and the most important factors that negatively affect the marriage have been singled out, which include: lack of emotional support, inflated expectations of marriage, dissatisfaction with the character of the spouse. It is shown that the more similarity in relation to important areas of life and common motivational orientations and needs the spouses have, the more level of satisfaction with family life they obtain. The similarity of characters and the presence of similar values in spouses keep the family together. In contrast, the sharp divergence between the real character of the spouse and the expectations from him/her is the most influential factor that determines low marriage satisfaction.


KEYWORDS:

marriage satisfaction; peculiarities of the social and psychological attitudes of modern spouses; motivational orientation; interpersonal dealings between the spouses; factors that negatively affect the marriage.
