Abstract

Marriage is one of the most important decisions that an individual may make in their life. Marital satisfaction is among the main determinants of life quality and psychological health. The manner of regulating the couples’ emotion, which is affected by attachment styles, accounts for the degree of their marital satisfaction. The current research aims to investigate the relation between attachment styles, marital satisfaction and emotion regulation among married people. For this purpose, the questionnaires for intimate relations (attachment styles) (ECR-S), difficulty in emotion regulation (DERS), and empowering marriage life for couples (ENRICH) were distributed among 89 married men and women who expressed their willingness to respond and cooperate in the research. The responses were analyzed by SPSS. The results reveal that the anxious attachment style is the predictor for happiness with sexual relations and religious orientation of the couples
