In the present research an attempt was made to assess the level of aggression among husbands & wives (married couples). The study was carried on by formulating hypotheses that (a) – Husbands and Wives would differ significantly in terms of their aggressive behaviour.(b)- Husbands and Wives would differ significantly in terms of their Physical Aggression, Verbal Aggression, Anger and Hostility. For empirical verification of these two hypotheses a study was conducted on a sample of 100 Married Couples (50 Husbands and 50 Wives) from Patna by employing incidental sampling technique. The Buss-Perry Scale was used for measuring aggression among married couples. A personal data sheet was also prepared and used by the researcher for collecting necessary personal information about respondents. For the analysis of the obtained scores t-ratio was computed. The findings on the whole indicated that there is significant difference between husbands and wives in terms of their level of aggression.
