WACHELKE, João Fernando Rech et al. Measure of the satisfaction in couple relationship. PsicoUSF [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.1, pp. 11-18. ISSN 1413-8271.

This study aimed to describe the construction and validation of a couple relationship satisfaction scale, composed by sub-scales for measuring component aspects of relationship satisfaction. For the constitution of the Factorial Scale of Satisfaction in Couple Relationships nine items were developed, in the 5-point Likert scale format, divided in two factors after the principal component analysis and factor analysis, that is, Satisfaction with Physical Attraction and Sexuality and Satisfaction with Affinities of Interests and Behavior, formed by five and four items respectively. The Cronbach alpha reliability indexes, 0,76 and 0,61, were considered satisfactory. The results suggest that satisfaction with affinities between relationship companions is low and variable, while satisfaction with sexuality and companions' appearance is high and presents more similar measures.

Keywords : Couple relationship; Affinity behavior; Relationship satisfaction.
