Abstract
The aim of the current study was to investigate the mediating role of marital satisfaction in the link between attachment styles and mother's well-being among mothers of preschool children in Korea. The participants were 208 mothers of preschool children recruited from 2 daycare centers and 3 kindergartens in Busan, South Korea. The participating mothers completed self-report questionnaires regarding attachment styles, marital satisfaction, and mother's well-being. Mediation model tested using PROCESS (Hayes, 2013) revealed that marital satisfaction partially mediated the associations between anxious attachment and mother's well-being. The findings suggest that both relational representations and present intimate relationships are crucial factors in mother's well-being. The findings enhance the understanding of the paths from anxious attachment to mother's well-being through marital satisfaction. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
