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.
