Additionally it was found that a standardized measure of relationship satisfaction was associated with the MRQ subscales; both females and males reported being more satisfied with their intimate relationships to the extent that they reported greater relational-esteem and relational-motivation, and lower relational-anxiety, relational-depression, external-relational-control, and fear of intimate relationships.

Relationship satisfaction was assessed with a single 7-point Likert item on which subjects were asked to indicate how satisfied they felt when they considered all aspects of their relationship.

The participants were then handed the questionnaire and were instructed to answer the questions pertain to their current relationship and if they were not in a current relationship to answer the questions pertaining to a past relationship and if they have not had an intimate relationship to answer the questions hypothetically.
