Abstract

Abstract The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between personality traits and the cause of mental divorce in a sample of females.161 females (50 nurses, 63 housewives, 48 high school teachers) were included in this study. All participants completed the NEO-FFI test (Costa, McCrae, 1987) and the Dyadic adjustment scale ( Spanier, 1976). The individuals with higher level in the scales of extraversion, openness to experience, conscientiousness and agreeableness plus lower level in neurosis showed less rates in mental divorce.
