Abstract

Social-psychological factors influencing the life-satisfaction of never-married men and women were examined Predictor variables included self-esteem, aspects of social support, and social and emotional loneliness. Regression analyses revealed that emotional loneliness and availability of attachment relationships were influential for the life satisfaction of women. The model for predicting men's life satisfaction included self-esteem and availability of social integration. These results are discussed both in terms of related research and implications for practitioners.
