An attempt is made to devise a formula to predict, from premarital background factors, the probabilities of dominant, equalitarian, and submissive roles in marriage. Those background items which show significant relationship with role scores of husband and wife are selected for purpose of prediction. As a result, eleven predictors are selected and used in constructing the three expectancy tables. In order to perfect the instrument of prediction, it is suggested that more differentiating questions be obtained, that other significant predictors be added to the prediction battery, and that a second group of cases be used to test the efficiency of the instrument.
