Abstract

Introduction: Adult attachment theory is a determinant  and important theory in marital relationships and marital satisfaction. The main purpose of this research was to study the marital satisfaction in regard to spousesâ�� anxiety and avoidance attachment. Materials and Methods: This research is a correlation one. The study population of this research was Isfahanian couples (2011) who were married at least more than one year and had no stressful events in their life up to the time of the study. 242 couples were selected through available method sampling. In this research, the Marital Satisfaction Index (CSI) and the Experiences in Close Relationships-Revised Questionnaire (ECR-R) were used for collecting data. The data was analyzed by SPSS-18 and using cluster analysis, ANOVA, MANOVA, and SEM. Results: With regard to both spousesâ�� marital satisfaction, four groups were identified: unsatisfied wife, devitalized spouses, satisfied spouses, and vitalized spouses. These groups were different in wifeâ��s and husbandâ��s marital satisfaction significantly (P<0.001). In addition these groups were different in wifeâ��s and husbandâ��s anxiety (P< 0.001) and avoidance (P<0.001) attachment significantly. The self and partner effect on wifeâ��s and husbandâ��s marital satisfaction were studied based on actor-partner interdependence model. The results showed that in both wife and husband, attachment dimensions reduced the marital satisfaction (P<0.05). Also the partnerâ��s avoidance attachment reduced the marital satisfaction (P<0.01).  Conclusion: Marital satisfaction could predict based on spousesâ�� attachment style. Marital satisfaction is affected by self and partner attachment system. Â
