Abstract

It is to be expected that the marital partners' life satisfaction in a given society is closely related to fertility issues and willingness to have children, so any insight into determinants of marital partners' life satisfaction is of utmost theoretical and practical importance. A research was performed with the aim to test the influence of number of children in the family on marital partners' life satisfaction. Five hundred and five marriage couples, i.e. 1010 participants were included in the study. The couples werea representative sample for the City of Zagreb and Zagreb metropolitan area on the variable husbands' education. Two main effects (number of childrenand gender of the partner) and five covariates (marital partners' age and salary, size of dwelling unit, economic stress/need for economizing) were defined. ANOVA and ANCOVAs including five covariates were performed, the independent variable defining three groups: no child, one child and two and more children in the family. The statistically significant difference betweenthese groups was obtained only after variables economic stress/need for economizing as perceived by marital partners were included info analysis together with other covariates. In that case the highest level of life satisfaction was expressed by parents having two and more children. The obtained results clearly demonstrated the importance of economic factors for marital partners' life satisfaction, more precisely the subjective experience of thefamily's economic situation. No influence of gender of the marital partnernor the interaction between two main effects was found after the complete control for covariates was performed.
