Abstract

Marriage provides benefits to physical and psychological health, sexual satisfaction and extends one's life span, but work or higher education for one partner requires individuals to live in different places or travel for longer durations and make the two partners separate. Every married couple will tend to have a desire to achieve satisfaction in their marital relationship even though they live apart due to work demands. Individuals, especially those who are married, are important to increase happiness and well-being in fostering a grateful household, because gratitude has a relationship with various aspects and components of happiness. The purpose of this study was to determine the gratitude and happiness of marital satisfaction on the wife whose husband left her to work outside the city. The research method uses quantitative methods. The sample in this study were wives who did not work, aged 20-40 years and were left by their husbands to work outside the city with a minimum span of 1 month. Data collection in this method uses non-probability sampling with purposive sampling technique. The measuring tools used in this research are adaptation of The Gratitude Questionnaire-6 (GQ-6), and Happiness Scale Based on Indigenous Psychology Approach and Couples Satification Index (CSI).
