INFORMATION : page. 157~177 / 2017 Vol.24 No.2


This study examined the actor and partner effect of orientations to happiness and happiness-enhancing activities on life satisfaction. The self-reported data were collected as a dyad unit consisting of 276 married couples aged from 30 to 59 and living in Seoul and Gyeonggi province. The data were analyzed using paired-t tests, correlations and APIMeM. The results were as follows. First, the husbands reported relatively high endorsement of seeking meaning compared to their wives. The husbands spent more time in goal-focused activities than their wives, while the wives spent more time in community and personal relationship activities than their husbands did. The husbands reported greater life satisfaction than their wives. Second, the actor effects of orientations to happiness on life satisfaction through happiness-enhancing activities were significant both in the husbands and wives. However, the partner effect of happinessenhancing activities on life satisfaction was significant only from the wives to the husbands. These findings would provide information and resources for practical programs enhancing the life satisfaction of married couples.
