Attachment , Infidelity , Marital Satisfication


Marriage is a formally committed relationship between a man and a woman. In this relationship, there are norms, expectations, and also the habits of each individual influenced by culture as part of determining satisfaction in marriage. However, achieving marital satisfaction is inseparable from external threats, one of which is infidelity. Lately, infidelity seems to be a trend that can easily be found from various backgrounds (Muhajarah. K, 2016). The development of this infidelity phenomenon, it is a sign of disharmony in a marriage relationship. To prevent this phenomenon from occurring, harmonization in marriage is needed (Sorowski et al., 2021). Harmonization can be established by having a good personal relationship between spouses. With this, the couple will be able to accept the strengths and weaknesses of the partner, be open to each other, complement each other, and be comfortable with each other so that they do not look for fulfillment of needs for other people outside of the marriage bond. The writing of this study aims to see and prove whether there is a relationship between a person's feelings of attachment and marital satisfaction, which can be one of the predictive factors of infidelity. To see this, researchers used quantitative methods using 3 measuring instruments. The measuring instrument is to measure a person's feelings of attachment, marital satisfaction in married couples, and also a person's behavioral tendencies to commit infidelity
