Abstract

This study examines the effects of several variables which are considered to influence marital satisfaction - mate selection, potency, levels of education, attitudes towards love, and expectations regarding marriage - among Israeli Arabs, divided by religion into three groups: Muslims, Christians (Roman Catholics), and Druze. Findings revealed that marital quality was higher among Druze and Christians than among Muslims. Potency contributed to marital quality in all groups, while levels of education affected marital quality among Muslims and Christians but not Druze.
