Abstract: Based on a modified version of Lazarus and Cohen¿s (1977) Transactional Model of Stress and Coping as a theoretical framework, this quantitative study of 216 eligible Chinese respondents who were service recipients of family service centres and counselling centres in Singapore seeks to understand how persons experiencing marital infidelity, with different demographic, marital- and infidelity-related profiles differ in their appraisal, coping and psychosocial outcomes of marital satisfaction, mental health and divorce proneness. The study found the modified model relevant to understand the appraisal and coping process of Singaporean Chinese. It also proposed a roadmap to guide practitioners in helping clients modify their appraisal and coping to achieve improved psychosocial outcomes. Implications for academic knowledge, clinical practice, social policies and directions for research were discussed.
