Abstract
The present study investigated whether self-esteem mediates the relationship of marital satisfaction with depression in married couples. Kansas Marital Satisfaction Scale (KMSS; Schumm, Scanlon, Crow, Green, & Buckler, 1983), Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES; Rosenberg, 1965), and Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CESD; Radloff, 1977) were administered on a sample of 100 couples. Linear and Stepwise Regression analyses were applied to analyze the data. The analyses reveal a significant predictive relationship of Marital Satisfaction with Self- Esteem (R² = 0.062, F = 13.004, p < .05) and of Self-Esteem with Depression (R² = 0.256, F= 68.076, p < .05). Moreover, Self-esteem significantly mediated the relationship of Marital Satisfaction with Depression (F = 37.699, df = 2, 97, p < .05).
