The sample consisted of 264 married individuals. The alpha coefficient for the DAS was .92. Computed split-half reliability coefficient was .86. The DAS correlated .82 with the Locke-Wallace Marital Adjustment Test. The original factor structure of the DAS was replicated in the present study. In general, the data indicated that the DAS provides a reliable and valid measure of marital adjustment for a Turkish sample.
