Abstract: The construction and validation of the Marital Intimacy Questionnaire (MIQ), a theory-based self-report questionnaire assessing 5 components of marital intimacy, is described. Factor scales were produced using data from 93 couples and confirmed in a new sample of 102 couples. Internal consistency analysis indicated sufficient degrees of reliability and moderate interscale correlations. Construct validity was established by examining the correlations of the MIQ with measures of marital satisfaction, perceived global intimacy, and communication intimacy, and discriminant validity by showing its ability to discriminate between maritally distressed and nondistressed couples.
