ABSTRACT

Success in marriage is much more than finding the right person; it is a matter of being the right person. Husbands and wives relationship with each other affect the adjustment and mental health of couples. Marital happiness is very strongly linked to mental health. Marital dissatisfaction increases the problem of mental health of married couples. Depression is one of the most prevalent mental health problems. It can be caused by several factors, including interpersonal relationships. In keeping all these views in mind the present study was conducted on 200 women (100 younger and 100 old) in Haryana state. In results, Depression was negatively correlated with marital adjustment. Marital duration affects the marital adjustment. Younger women (less than five years of marriage) are more adjusted in comparison to the older women (more than 5 years of marriage).
