Abstract: The purpose of the present study is to examine the relationship between sex role orientation and relationship satisfaction in Turkish dating couples. Seventy dating couples completed the Bem Sex Role Inventory, the Relationship Assessment Scale and a demographic information form. The results indicated that while perceived sex role orientation of the partners was related to relationship satisfaction, actual sex role orientation of the partners was not related. That is, individuals who perceived their partners as androgynous reported higher levels of relationship satisfaction than the other perceived sex role classifications. The results were discussed in terms of earlier studies, sample characteristics and bias in close relationships.
