Interparental Conflict and Emerging Adults’ Couple Satisfaction: The Mediating Roles of Romantic Relationship Conflict and Marital Attitudes
The purpose of this study was to elucidate the mediating role of conflict in romantic relationship and general attitudes toward marriage in the link between interparental conflict and emerging adults’ romantic relationship satisfaction. A total of 301 emerging adults (229 women, 76.1%; 72 men, 23.9%) recruited from a large state university located in a western city of Turkey completed a battery of self-reports measuring interparental conflict, conflict in romantic relationship, general attitudes toward marriage, and couple satisfaction. Participants’ ages ranged between 18 and 25 (M = 20.24; SD = 1.55). Research results indicated that conflict in romantic relationship and general attitudes toward marriage fully mediate the relationship between interparental conflict and emerging adult children’s couple satisfaction. In sum, all these findings offer additional evidences regarding the mechanisms by which interparental conflict influences offspring’s couple satisfaction from a sample of non-western culture.
