In Indonesia, multi ethnics marital, especially with Chinese, still not fully accepted because of the stereotype. These conditions made some multi-ethnics couples got trouble to marriage or became afraid to continue their marriages. This study intended to analyze the influence factors of multi ethnics marital satisfaction. From 86 subjects (whose already married and became multi ethnics couples) found that there were eight major factors which influenced multi ethnic marital satisfaction; (1) love and intimacy,(2) couples interactions,(3) marriage readiness,(4) family support,(5) religious and nationality background,(6) pre-marital relation,(7) personal hope of marriages,(8) relation with partner's family. The three most dominant factors were (1) love and intimacy, (2) premarital relation, (3) relation with partner's family. In this study, pre-marital relationship was also time for each couple to learn about the other cultures and could accept it. Results from this study suggested that pre-marital multi ethnic couples should learn about the cultures of their partner and make a good pre-marital relation, not only with the partner but mostly with the partner's families. For marriage couples, they should concern about eight factors that could influence their marital satisfaction.
