Abstract

Based on international experience and the present socioeconomic
situation in Croatia three theoretical models were created
about influence of work-related stressors and crossover effect on
marriage quality. The first model represented the direct influence
of work-related stressors on marriage quality and the other two
were mediation ones. The first mediation model consisted of four
exogenous and four endogenous variables and in the second
mediation model covariate variable was added. The models
were tested on 340 full-time-employed marital couples representing
the quota sample of Zagreb and Zagreb metropolitan
area. Models were evaluated using SEM separately for wives and
for the husbands. The best model for predicting marital partners'
marriage quality was the mediation model with covariate. By this
model 39% of husband's and 57% of wife's marriage quality was
explained. Also, according to results, there was a crossover effect
present, i.e. work-related stressors of one marital partner
influenced the marriage quality of the other marital partner.
