Title: Depression, marital dissatisfaction and problem drinking among adults in South Korea


Biography: Myeong Sook Yoon


Statement of the Problem: This study is aimed to investigate the mediating effect of depression between marital dissatisfaction and problem drinking among married men and women in South Korea. People with alcohol problems report low confidence about resolving marital disagreements with their partner. High family conflict and low levels of family cohesion and support increase the likelihood of problem drinking and depression.

Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: The subjects of this study are 724 married men and women aged 20-49 years old. AUDIT-K, marital dissatisfaction scale, patient health questionnaire (PHQ-9) was used for assessment. Collected data was analyzed by AMOS 22.0.

Findings: Marital dissatisfaction had a significant relationship with depression, but marital dissatisfaction did not show a significant association with problem drinking and depression fully mediated the relationship between marital dissatisfaction and problem drinking.

Conclusion & Significance: Depression in married men and women was a significant variable for marital relationship status and problem drinking. The implications and limitations of these findings are discussed, and directions for future studies are proposed.
