The sample of the present study consisted of 200 Young married women (age range 25 -35 ) drawn equally from the urban population of house wives and working women. To asses the marital adjustment and personality marital adjustment Questionnaire and Eysenck Personality Inventory (E.P.I.) were administered to the sampled subjects.
