Abstract: This study investigated the influence of marital stressors on role performance of married academic women in tertiary institutions in Cross River State. In order to accomplish the purpose of the study, five specific objectives and corresponding research questions were posed to guide the study. Five hypotheses were postulated to provide further guide for the study. The survey research design was adopted in the study. A total of 421 women academics were drawn from the five tertiary institutions used. The instrument that was used in this study is a 61-item Influence of marital stressors on role performance questionnaire (lMSRPQ). Five experts in Guidance and Counselling and Measurement and Evaluation were used to establish the face validity of the instrument. Factor analysis was used to establish the construct validity of the instrument. Cronbach alpha reliability was used for test of reliability. The reliability estimate for the instrument was 0.73. Pearson's r was used for answering the research questions and multiple regression analysis was used for testing the postulated hypotheses. The results of the study showed that marital stressors influenced the role performance of the married academic women in tertiary institutions in Cross River State and the influence was significant in most cases. Based on the above, it was recommended, among others; that women academics should be encouraged and sponsored to attend professional conferences, seminars and workshops on stress management in their discipline in order to assist them manage their stress.
