In order to achieve the aim, the study uses questionaries as the quantitative method. 378 valid questionnaires out of 400, targeting middle-aged women who live in Daegu, Gyenonguk, Busan, Gyeongnam, Seoul and Gyeonggi were taken for analysis. The survey was taken between September and November of 2012. There appear to be three distinctive outcomes. First, the subfactors of marital conflicts attribute mostly to depression as significant. The interaction between personal conflict and leisure experience as a subfactor of marital conflicts is statistically demonstrated to be a meaningful explanation of depression. Derived from these outcomes, women`s leisure experience appears to be moderating variable as a buffering effect to the marital conflicts of middle-aged women which influences their depressions. Lastly, the final subfactor of marital conflict is the communal life conflict, however, leisure experiences act as a game changing factor for women`s depression. Thus, a community with high level of leisure experience has a lower relation between communal life and depression. The major contribution of this study is to vindicate the importance of leisure experiences for middle-aged women who bear psychological depression due to marital conflicts.
