WACHELKE, João Fernando Rech; ANDRADE, Alexsandro Luiz de; SOUZA, André Moraes  and  CRUZ, Roberto Moraes. Complementary factorial validity study concerning the Factorial Relationship Satisfaction Scale and prediction of global relationship satisfaction. PsicoUSF [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.2, pp. 221-225. ISSN 1413-8271.

The study complements the validation of the Factorial Scale of Satisfaction in Couple Relationships, within a different sample composed by 342 university students in steady relationships (52,3% of whom were female). After a factor analysis, a similar factor structure and superior reliability indexes were found, in comparison with the first study, although one item has obtained a loading lower than 0,30 on the two factors. A multiple regression analysis was carried on to relate the scale's dimensions to a measure of global relationship satisfaction. The model including both EFS-RC sub-scales as predictors has explained 46% of relationship satisfaction variance.
