In a study of factors directly and indirectly involved with the quality of life for married couples, economic and noneconomic variables appeared to cluster and show two paths for husbands and wives to satisfaction with quality of life. Path analysis revealed that agreement over financial expenditures contributed to satisfaction with quality of life indirectly, through satisfaction with spouse for husbands and through satisfaction with spouse and income satisfaction for wives. Increased understanding of the role of disagreements over finances and other family satisfactions in contributing to family well-being may give counselors a firmer foundation upon which to build intervention strategies with their clients.
