Abstract: This study examined relationships among time allocation, clergy wife roles, and marital satisfaction in 32 Episcopal priests and 34 clergy wives. Respondents were provided log books and asked to record for two non-consecutive weeks within a six-week period all time spent in 16 activity categories and the social context in which each activity occurred (alone, with spouse, children, or others). Marital satisfaction was measured by the Marital Satisfaction Scale (MSS) developed by Roach in 1980. The average priest was found to allot 55% of his waking time to church work, 34% to domestic activities, and 11% to secular activities. Over half the wives were employed, but whether employed or not, the average wife spent 56% of her time in home and family activities, 16% in church activities, and 28% in secular activities. Previous studies have defined clergy wife roles by the wife's level of participation in the husband's ministry. Based on this criterion, this study found some support for four clergy wife roles: teamworker, background supporter with children in the home, background supporter without children, and individualist. However, the amount of variance accounted for by a principal components analysis was low, suggesting that the categorizing of clergy wives by their involvement in their husbands' ministry may be inappropriate. Two thirds of respondents scored above the mean on the MSS . Marital satisfaction in this population was correlated with the amount of time spent with spouse, family, and others across activity categories. For both priests and wives, the most powerful predictor of low marital satisfaction was time spent alone in specified activities: church administration and recreation for priests, housework and recreation for wives. Clergy wives most involved in church work and least in secular employment, socializing, and study (teamworker role) were found more likely to have low marital satisfaction; wives most involved in secular activities and least in housework and home management (individualist role) were found likely to be more satisfied with their marriages. Other implications of the study and recommendations for further research are discussed.
