The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the Indonesian economy. As a result, many employees have been laid off on a large scale. The family economy that was disrupted due to layoffs also had an impact on marital relations. This study aims to see a picture of marital satisfaction in wives with their husbands being laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The method used in this research is descriptive quantitative. Sampling was carried out using the Snowball Sampling technique. The reliability test was carried out using Cronbach's alpha technique. The subjects in this study were 100 wives who did not work with their husbands being laid off. The results of the empirical mean calculation in this study show that marital satisfaction between wives and husbands who have been laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic is in a low category. Marital satisfaction in this study includes aspects of conflict management, joint decision making, and aspects of communication quality, which are in the low category, while aspects of trust, respect, empathy, and equality are in the very low category. Then the aspects of sexual and psychological intimacy are in the medium category.

Keywords : Marital satisfaction, Covid-19 pandemic, wives with unemployed.
