Abstract

The definition of this construct is one of the most controversial topics in the literature. On the basis of various contributions, marital adjustment can be defined as a multidimensional indicator of the quality of marital relationship. Evolution of the Construct Marital adjustment is one of the most studied dimensions in the couple and family research literature. According to Spanier (1976, p. 15), already by the 1970s, marital adjustment was “probably the most frequently investigated dependent variable in the field”. Also during the last 30 years, family researchers and scholars have maintained a strong interest on marital adjustment, as an outcome (Shriner 2009). The literature on marital adjustment reveals a variety of factors that are related to the dyadic adjustment (e.g., individual aspects like personality traits, irrational beliefs, and dysfunctional emotions Abbasi 2017; Filipović et al. 2016 and relational aspects like romantic attachment and dyadic coping (Young et al. 2017). Over the last decade, a substantial number of studies have focused on the role of personality traits in predicting the quality of adult romantic relationships (Abbasi 2017; Lampis et al. 2018; Rusu et al. 2019).
