Marital quality is a construct that is often interchangeably used with other constructs such as marital satisfaction, marital adjustment and marital happiness. This condition brought impact to the variations in its measurement. This research intended to validate the two most frequently used marital quality inventories, the Quality Marital Index (QMI) and Relationship Assessment Scale (RAS) in the Indonesian version using factorial structure and psychometric properties. The participants of this study were 81 heterosexual couples (N═162) with average marriage duration 16.6 years, and all had a minimum of one child. Confirmatory Factor Analysis using Lisrell 9.3 revealed that RAS Indonesian form had better internal structure than QMI Indonesian form. The model of QMI was a poor fit, and the model of RAS with only 5 items was a close fit. RAS-Indonesian form had two items with low standardized factor loadings. Cultural bias in wording and other reasons for these findings are discussed.
