The current study was conducted to determine whether demographic variables, marriage type, and religious orientation predict dyadic adjustment. Study participants (N = 262) completed an 83-item online survey questionnaire about various aspects of religious beliefs married life, and reported demographic information. Multiple regression analyses tested the hypotheses. Women, those with lower incomes, and those in an interfaith marriage had higher levels of dyadic consensus, one of the components of Spanier’s 1976 Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS), despite their religious differences. Furthermore, marriage type, income, and religious orientation played a role in levels of dyadic satisfaction and dyadic cohesion. The discussion includes implications for future research.
