TRINDADE, Melina Carvalho  e  CAMILO, Cristina. The social sharing of emotions in conjugality and its impact on marital satisfaction. Pensando fam. [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.1, pp. 93-111. ISSN 1679-494X.

In an attempt to integrate social sharing of emotions (SSE) theory with conjugality, this study evaluated the impact of SSE quality on marital satisfaction and whether if there is difference between men and women in this process. For this purpose, 185 participants, of Portuguese nationality, aged 30 years or more, who were in a marital relationship, answered a sociodemographic questionnaire, the Satisfaction Assessment Scale in Areas of Conjugal Life (EASAVIC), the Differential Emotion Scale, a set of measures and indicators related to SSE, an European Social Survey questions related to subjective well-being and a reduced version of the Social Support Scale (Haslam et al., 2005). The obtained results related SSE quality with marital satisfaction suggesting that higher levels of SSE quality seem to be related to higher levels of marital satisfaction. On the opposite of what was expected, men and women did not demonstrated significant differences. Considering the possible influence of SSE on the levels of marital satisfaction, this research supports the importance of being conduct researches related to the quality of SSE in marital relationships.
