GOMES, Loyane Ellen Silva  e  SA, Lucas Guimarães Cardoso de. Which are the relationships between early maladaptive schemas, social skills and marital satisfaction?. Pensando fam. [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.2, pp. 65-80. ISSN 1679-494X.

This study investigated the relationships between social skills, early maladaptive schemas, and marital satisfaction. This is an analytical, observational, cross-sectional, and correlational study. The sample consisted of 375 participants between 19 and 55 years (M = 26.45; SD = 5.92), majority were women, had higher education, lived in the northeast region of Brazil, were in courtship, with no children, and in heterosexual relationships. They completed The Inventory of Marital Social Skills, the Marital Satisfaction Scale, and the Young Schema Questionnaire. Correlation and mediation analyses were performed. The results indicated that: (a) greater marital satisfaction is related to a greater repertoire of social skills and fewer early maladaptive schemas, (b) the fewer early maladaptive schemas, the greater the repertoire of social skills, and (c) the influence of the early maladaptive schemas on marital satisfaction is better explained from the mediation of social skills. It is concluded that the repertoire of social skills plays a central role in establishing satisfactory conjugal relationships.
