by Harper, Erika Jean, Ph.D., Regent University, 2009, 176; 3383862
Abstract (Summary)

This study attempts to clarify the influence of gender, religious locus of control (RLOC), and prayer frequency upon relationship satisfaction. Results indicated that respondents with high intrinsic RLOC had higher relationship satisfaction than those with low intrinsic RLOC. Women reported higher relationship satisfaction when they reported lower extrinsic personal RLOC, while men with higher scores on relationship satisfaction were more likely to report high extrinsic personal RLOC. Supplementary findings indicated that higher religiosity relates to higher intrinsic RLOC and higher extrinsic personal RLOC, while higher prayer frequency relates to higher intrinsic RLOC and higher extrinsic personal RLOC.
