    This study aimed to investigate the relationship between sleep deprivation, sex drive and marital satisfaction. This is a correlational study that uses a quantitative, cross-sectional research design. A total of sixty-five married individuals were recruited using convenient sampling method. Epworth Sleepiness Scale, Sexual Desire Inventory- 2 (SDI-2) and Marital Adjustment Test (MAT) were used in our study. Pearson correlation test was used to measure the relationship of three variables and the results presented no significance between sleep deprivation and marital satisfaction but a slight negative correlation between both variables. Furthermore, results also indicated that there is no significant relationship between sleep deprivation and sex drive. However, married individuals with higher sex drive reported higher marital satisfaction. There was also no significant difference shown between gender and marital satisfaction which was measured using independent t-test. Moreover, linear regression was used to measure the level of prediction between sex drive and marital satisfaction and results showed that sex drive significantly predicts marital satisfaction. The findings in this study are fundamental for future researchers and studies as it can be a form of educational reference. It can also benefit marriage counselors in marriage or couples counseling and public health awareness discourse.
