There is no difference of individuals’ self-esteem base on the demographic factor of gender. Communication in marital relationship is found to have no relationship with self-esteem. However, the researcher found that there is relationship between task accomplishment and self- esteem, and affective expression and self- esteem.This shows that task accomplishment and affective expression is an important element in marital relationship as they affect Christians’ self- esteem and Christian’s self-esteem might be affected by task accomplishment and affective expression in marital relationship.
