No previous researcher has examined the relationship between marital adjustment and similarity of partner personality on a measure of the five-factor personality model. In the present study we examined this relationship in 99 married couples.

With the exception of conscientiousness, the traits on which similarity was related to adjustment differed for husbands and wives. Reasons for these sex differences are discussed.
