The article presents hypothesis concerning possible correlates of sexual satisfaction in marriage. A person's satisfaction with his/her marriage or primary relationship tends to be a pivotal factor in his/her overall happiness. Sexual satisfaction is an important aspect of marital satisfaction. Given the high rate of divorce and the marital and sexual dissatisfaction experienced by many couples that do not divorce, a number of researchers have sought to identify the factors that have a positive or negative impact on sexual satisfaction among married persons. Such studies have investigated the relationship of sexual satisfaction to physical aspects of sexual experience and to psychological factors within individuals and couples. In addition, religiosity, gender-role perception or adaptation, cultural variables and a host of other factors have been studied to determine their relationship, if any, to sexual satisfaction. The results of the survey indicate that sexual satisfaction in these married respondents could not be compartmentalized to their sexual interactions, but was strongly associated with non-sexual aspects of the overall marital relationship as well.
