This study aims to describe the marriage satisfaction on the wives of Muslim families. The informants are six wives that have the marital period up 10 years. The method of selecting informants was done through the screening stage using the Enrich Marriage Satisfaction scale to get informants with low, moderate, and high marital satisfaction levels. Data collection uses in- depth interviews. Then the data is analyzed using inductive analysis. The findings show that wives in Muslim families consider marriage satisfaction as a benchmark to achieve the hope of having a family of sakinah, mawaddah, rahmah, happy, and intact. Wives who are able to achieve marital satisfaction can be shown through (1) two-way communication; (2) intimacy; (3) partner’s together activities; (4) stable financial conditions; (5) the existence of children; (6) the practice of religious values; and (7) the effective way to deal with marriage conflicts. In conclusion, wife's marriage satisfaction varies and is influenced by their expectations.
