This study aimed at revealing the mediational role of perceived marital problem solving between religiousness and marital satisfaction relationship in a Turkish sample. The participants were 92 married couples, who were the parents of Middle East Technical University students. Hierarchical Regression Analyses were performed in order to test the mediational role of marital problem solving between religiousness and marital satisfaction relationship. Moreover, some additional Hierarchical Regression Analyses were performed with the variables related to religiousness, namely hopelessness and submissive acts. In the first hypothesis it was expected that marital problem solving will play a mediational role between Hireligiousness and marital satisfaction. In the second hypothesis, it was suggested that marital problem solving will play a mediator role between hopelessness and marital satisfaction. Similarly, in the third hypothesis, it was expected that marital problem solving will play a mediator role between submissive acts and marital satisfaction. According to the results of these analyses, it was found that religiousness had a main effect on marital satisfaction, but mediational role of problem solving did not emerged, thus first hypothesis was only partially confirmed. Second and the third hypotheses were supported. Results were discussed by referring the relevant literature.
