Abstract

The theory of intrapersonal model maintains that an individual's personality traits can directly affect marital satisfaction. Although, an intrapersonal model in its extreme version may suggest that the negative relationship between characteristic anxieties and marital satisfaction is mediated by marital communication, the interpersonal and intrapersonal models do not share the same limitations. Any intrapersonal persuasion is most likely accompanied with interpersonal procedures. This study tested the relationship between the five factor model of personality (neuroticism, extraversion, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness), marital satisfaction and the risk of divorce. The participants completed NEO-FFI and ENRICH and they were interviewed according to the OFfl (Oral History Interview) method. The results demonstrate that neuroticism is as a significant predictor of marital satisfaction and the risk of divorce. In addition, such traits as conscientiousness, agreeableness, extraversion and openness to experience can help predict satisfaction in married couples.
