Abstract
Objective: To investigate the relationship between personality factors and marital satisfaction among working married doctors and underlying moderating role played by gender.
Methodology: This cross sectional study was carried out at Armed Forces Post Graduate Medical Institute, Rawalpindi from September to October, 2018. A purposive sample of 100 working married doctors was included from Rawalpindi. They were administered Big Five Inventory (BFI) and Marital Satisfaction Scale. Data were analyzed on SPSS version 23 using bivariate correlation, t test and moderation analysis was done using Process-Macro.
Results: Marital Satisfaction had significant positive correlation with personality factors (agreeableness and conscientiousness). It had significant negative correlation with Neuroticism personality factor. Significant gender differences were found on subscale neuroticism of BFI and marital satisfaction. Females had less marital satisfaction as compared to males. Gender moderated the relationship between marital satisfaction and personality traits (i.e. agreeableness and neuroticism).
Conclusion: The result of this study showed that Neuroticism lead to marital dissatisfaction. Outcomes of current study will add into the data regarding the risk factors of marital dissatisfaction.

Key words: Marital satisfaction, personality traits, married doctors.
