Hea Marital Happiness among Obese and Non-obese People in Kuwaitding

Auther : Hayfa'a Alkandari

 The study aimed to investigate marital happiness and relevant factors among 196 obese and non-obese Kuwaiti adults. The Marital Happiness Scale for Al-Belhan and Al-Naser (2007) was used. The findings showed that obese people were less happy with marriage than non-obese people; they expressed low level of psychological acceptance, homogeneity and sexual competence with spouses. Obese wives, married couples with moderate income,whose spouses were non-obese,were less happy with marriage. Predictors such as marital satisfaction, an obese or non-obese spouse, and the number of children were found to have an impact on marital happiness among obese people, when compared to non-obese people. No statistically significant correlative relationship was found on either the impact of marital happiness on weight or the impact of weight on marital happiness. Recommendations were suggested to help the social workers and professionals to understand the marital conditions of obese people in order to provide much better and more appropriate services.
Key words: Marital happiness, Marital satisfaction, Marital relationship, Marital problem, Demographics, Obesity, Kuwait
