College Student Journal, v44 n2 p413-416 Jun 2010
A revised version of the Quality Marriage Index (QMI) was used to examine demographic correlates of marital satisfaction. We administered the revised QMI to a sample of college students and found a significant positive correlation between age and relationship satisfaction. We suggest that this increase in relationship satisfaction could be due to age related increases in life satisfaction and age related increases in conscientiousness and decreases in neuroticism.
