Abstract The aim of the current study was to test predictors of sustained relationship satisfaction after couple relationship education (CRE). Sixty-six couples, who were stratified into high- and low-risk for future relationship problems groups, completed the Couple CARE program and were assessed on relationship self-regulation and negative couple communication after CRE. Relationship satisfaction was assessed across the next 4 years. Multilevel modeling of the trajectory of satisfaction showed there was a mean decline in satisfaction through the 4-year follow-up and that sustained high relationship satisfaction after CRE was predicted by high relationship self-regulation and low male negative communication but not by risk level or negative female communication.
