Primary use / Purpose:
Forgiveness is a construct that might help us understand the occurrence of psychological aggression and general patterns of communication in marriage. The marital forgiveness scale assesses forgiveness dimensions in relation to situations where the respondent's partner had 'wronged' them' or 'hurt them'. Higher scores indicate greater agreement with statements.
