The purpose of the current research study was to investigate the interrelationship among sex-role socialization, perceived intimacy, and relationship satisfaction. The sample consisted of 189 females and 79 males, with a mean age of 30 years. The mean length of relationship for the sample was 6 years. Sex-role socialization was measured using the Bem Sex-Role Inventory, perceived intimacy was measured using the emotional subscale of the Personal Assessment of Intimacy in Relationships Inventory, and relationship satisfaction was measured using the total score of the Dyadic Adjustment Scale. The results indicated that sex-role socialization had no significant influence on perceived intimacy or on relationship satisfaction. Findings indicated a significant relationship between perceived intimacy and relationship satisfaction. Implications and directions for future research are discussed
