SCORSOLINI-COMIN, Fabio  e  SANTOS, Manoel Antônio dos. Dyadic adjusting in conjugal relation: assessment of well-being in marriage. Rev. bras. crescimento desenvolv. hum. [online]. 2012, vol.22, n.3, pp. 367-372. ISSN 0104-1282.

This study aimed to discuss the employ of the Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS) to the evaluation of marital relationship, based on the investigation of correlations between the dimensions: cohesion, consensus, satisfaction and expression of affection. The scale was administered to a convenience sample and non-probabilistic 106 people married for 16.11 ± 11.35 years. Data show that all areas of the scale were moderately correlated with one another, although the stepwise multivariate analysis indicated that only dyadic cohesion was directly associated with the dyadic consensus and expression of affection. This finding confirms the adequacy of the scale to measure not only of dyadic adjustment, but also of marital relationship. It was suggested the possibility of using other instruments related to assess individual dimensions of satisfaction with the spouse.
