Abstract

This study set out to examine some psychometric properties of the Prospective Conjugal Coping Questionnaire (QCCP), namely the predictive value of the prospective coping in the explanation of personal well-being and dyadic adjustment. A sample of 451 adults in a couple relationship answered the QCCP, the Mental Health Continuum-SF (Keyes et al., 2008) and the Dyadic Adjustment Scale (Spanier, 1976). A six-items unifactorial prospective coping model showed a better fit to the data than the original two-factor solution. Multiple regression analyses showed that the prospective coping strategies explained a significant proportion of variance in all dimensions of dyadic adjustment and personal well-being. The results encourage us to pursue the study of this instrument within the scope of couplehood, in order to provide a valid and useful tool for the assessment of how people take an active role in building and maintaining the marital relationship.
