ABSTRACT

This non experimental approach examined 104 participants of the Association of Baccalaureate Social Work Program (BPD) on the impact work and children living in the home (under age 18) had on married couples’ perception of their sex lives. Multiple and linear regression were used to assess work life, work hours, and the impact of having children (under age 18) who resided in the home on participants’ perception of their sexual satisfaction. Results indicated that children do not have a statistically significant relationship on married couples’ martial sexual satisfaction while work life/work hours did have a significant relationship. These findings suggested therapists, counselors, and social workers acknowledge how work and children impact the sexual relationship of dual career couples as they try to balance their careers and family life.
