Previous studies which have used the Marital Patterns Test (Ryle, 1966) have shown that although it has potential in several areas of research, some items of the test are suspect. The validity and internal reliability of several items on the affection scales had particularly been questioned. Internal consistency analysis was used to examine the affection and domination scales for 81 wives and 77 husbands. Resulting recommendations included the exclusion of three affection items, and one item from each of the husband and wife forms of the domination scale. Two new affection items and one new domination item were found to be useful additions. Revised instructions and a revised version of the questionnaire were presented.
