Spousal consensus on 12 different topics is examined. In addition, the amount and direction of the influence of these factors (structure, cohesion and stress) thought to account for consensus are evaluated. Interviews with 321 urban couples provided the data for our analysis. We conclude that spousal consensus is neither unidimensional nor readily explained by factors commonly thought to influence consensus.
