ABSTRACT

The present study aimed at examining mothers-in-law acceptance-rejection as a predictor of psychological well-being among daughters-in-law. It had been assumed that warmth/ affection, hostility/ aggression, indifference/ neglect and undifferentiated/ rejection would significantly predict psychological well-being among daughters-in-law. A sample, comprised of two hundred (N=200) married women living with in-laws, was recruited from Faisalabad city through snowball sampling. Brief Interview Form (BIF), In-Law Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaire: Mother-in-Law (Rohner & Erkman, 2011) and Psychological Well-being Scale (Ryff & Keyes, 1995) were administered for data collection.  Linear and multiple regression analysis have shown that amongst four predictors, only warmth/affection and indifference /neglect significantly predicted psychological well-being among daughters-in-law. Accordingly, it is concluded that mother-in-law acceptance-rejection constitutes psychological health of daughters-in-law.
