The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of family-of-origin differentiation, ego identity, and attitudes toward children on marital intimacy among married men and women. The participants of this study were 261 married men and 274 married women whose marital period were less than 14 years, and whose first child was less than 12 years old and who were living in Chungbuk Province. Data were analyzed by frequency, percentages, ttest, F-test with Tukey test for post-hoc test, Cronbach for reliability analysis, factor analysis, and Pearson's correlation using the SPSS program(12.0 version). The model test was done with analysis of correlational matrix by the AMOS 5.0 package using a maximum likelihood estimation. Family of origin differentiation, ego identity, and attitude toward children had different effects on marital intimacy according to gender. Also, ego identity was the strongest predictor of men's marital intimacy whereas attitude was the strongest for women's marital intimacy.
