The current study aimed to verify the marital satisfaction as predicted by the early relationship between the daughter and her father and some demographic variables in a Jordanian sample of (247) husband and wife. The results showed that the physical relationship with the father and perceptions of father influence had a positive effect on marital satisfaction of the wife. The results showed that the mothers support for the daughters relationship with her father and the physical relationship of the daughter with her father and the perceptions of the fathers influence had a positive effect on the marital satisfaction of the husband. As for the demographic variables, the results indicated that marital satisfaction rises in both spouses in the case of womens work . While marital satisfaction decreases in both spouses in case of psychological disorders or alcohol abuse in the family. The results also show that marital satisfaction becomes better for the wife only when her marriage is unconventional and in the absence of children, and marital satisfaction increases only when the wife has a better educational level. The results of the study were discussed in a cultural and social context
