Abstract
The study examined the psychosocial factor of depression and marital satisfaction of married lecturers in
universities of Cross River State, Nigeria. To achieve the purpose of this research, two null hypotheses were formulated to
guide the study. Literature review was carried out accordingly. Survey research design was adopted and a sample of five
hundred and ninety (590) lecturers were used for the study. The sample was selected through stratified and simple random
sampling techniques, while the questionnaire was the main instrument used for data collection. The reliability estimate of
the instrument was established through Cronbach alpha reliability method. A one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was
the statistical method employed to analyze the hypotheses under study; each hypothesis was tested at .05 level of
significance. The results of the analysis revealed that depression and communication in marriage significantly influence
marital satisfaction of lecturers in Cross River State universities. Based on the findings, it was recommended that
professional marriage counsellors and other concerned individuals and bodies should organize and create more awareness
through marriage counselling workshops, symposia and conferences for public servants on the need for marital harmony
and counselling for couples.

Key words: Psychosocial factors, depression and marital satisfaction, married lecturers in universities
