dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to investigate the influence of attachment, love styles and religiosity on relationship satisfaction. In a cross-sectional design there were 102 participants (males=65, females=37). Four questionnaires were used: the Relationship Questionnaire (Bartholomew & Horowitz, 1991), the Love Attitudes Scale (Hendrick, Hendrick & Dicke, 1998), the Relationship Assessment Scale (Hendrick, Hendrick & Dicke, 1998) and the Religiosity Measure (Rohrbaugh & Jessor, 1975). Predictor variables were attachment, love styles and religiosity. Relationship satisfaction score was the criterion variable used. Gender was also tested with regards to relationship satisfaction. The results indicate that there is an association between relationship satisfaction and attachment (F (3, 98) =7.568, p<0.001), love styles (F (6, 95) =14.996, p<0.001) and religiosity (R=0.207, p<0.05, 2-tailed). An additional relationship existed between attachment and love styles (X2 (15) = 31.878, p=.007). However, there is little support for an association between relationship satisfaction and gender (t (100) = 1.825, p>0.05, 2-tailed), religiosity and attachment (F (3, 98) = 1.982, p> 0.05) and religiosity and love styles (F (5, 96) = .839, p> 0.05). Limitations and future research directions are discussed. Author keywords: Relationship satisfaction, attachment, religiosity, love stylesen
