Examined the relationships among 3 methods for assessing marital adjustment: self-reports of marital satisfaction, spouse reports of pleasing and displeasing behaviors, and trained observers' coding of positive and negative communication behaviors; 27 couples served as Ss. Frequency of pleasing behaviors was the only measure that correlated with global marital satisfaction. Inverse relationships were found between positive and negative scores for 2 of the 3 methods investigated. (3 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
