Marital satisfaction is a special case of relationship satisfaction, and is the degree to which partners in marriages assess their approval of different aspects of their marital relations.


Assessment tools such as the Marital Satisfaction Inventory[1] attempt to combine ratings in different areas such as affective communication, amount of time spent together, disagreement on financial problems, disagreement on children management and sexual satisfaction etc into a global measure of satisfaction.
