The main objective of this study was to develop a Polish version of the Remarriage Belief Inventory (RMBI, Higginbotham, Adler-Baeder, 2008) and evaluate its psychometric properties. Data were collected from a total sample of 262 divorced people. The statistical analysis confirmed satisfactory psychometric properties of the developed Polish version of RMBI. The structure of the Polish version of RMBI obtained in a factor analysis was similar to the original one - exploratory and confirmatory analyses validated the seven-factor structure. The second objective of this study was to explore the role of beliefs about remarriages in the assessment of marital satisfaction. The sample comprised 107 remarried individuals. The regression analysis showed that among the seven original remarriage beliefs statistically significant predictors of marital satisfaction were the following three: (i) success of stepfamily is slim, (ii) new partner is perfect, and (iii) stepfamilies are second-class.Further research on this topic is needed.
