Relationships are some of the most significant and complex social ties. They are an integral part of human experience. The aim was to study the effect of rejection sensitivity and adult attachment on relationship satisfaction. For this data was collected from 80 individuals belonging to the age group 18-28 years who have been dating their current partner for at least two years or more. Rejection Sensitivity was measured using Adult Rejection Sensitivity Questionnaire, Adult Attachment was measured using Adult Attachment Scale and Relationship Satisfaction was measured using Relationship Assessment Scale. The data was analyzed using correlation and regression. It was found that rejection sensitivity and relationship satisfaction have a positive correlation. Close and dependent attachment also had a positive correlation with relationship satisfaction. Anxious attachment had a negative correlation with relationship satisfaction.
