Background: Marital satisfaction is a lofty objective in the realization of a desirable family and acts as a fundamental contributor to the health and development of family members. One of the most important factors influencing marital satisfaction is attachment style. This study aimed to determine the relationship between attachment style and marital satisfaction in housewives.

Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 200 housewives referring to health centers of Birjand in 2016. The participants were selected by stratified cluster sampling method. The data collection instruments consisted of the standardized Marital Satisfaction Questionnaires and Collins and Read’s Adult Attachment Style Scale. The data were analyzed in SPSS software (version 19) using descriptive statistics and one-way ANOVA, Pearson correlation coefficient, and stepwise regression analysis. The significant level was set at values lower than 0.05. 

Results: The anxious attachment style (R=0.28) and avoidant attachment style (R=0.32) were predictors of marital satisfaction. There was a significant negative correlation between marital satisfaction and anxious attachment style (r=0.289), while the correlation between marital satisfaction and avoidant attachment style was significantly positive (r=0.183).

Conclusions: As attachment styles are contributory to marital satisfaction, counselors can build on couple therapy approach to have an effective role in modifying attachment styles of the couple and solving their conflicts both before and after marriage.

Keywords: Attachment styles, Marital satisfaction, Housewives
