Abstract

Findings from this study support the notion that marital satisfaction in couples with a child with cerebral palsy may be enhanced by couple cohesion and adaptability. Wives who cope by strengthening family life and relationships, and who have a positive outlook on life may also experience greater levels of marital satisfaction. Future research with larger samples of couples is needed to replicate these findings.
