Abstract: 
The aim of this research is to study the outcomes of emotional divorce and strategies to deal with it, and is fulfilled by the method of grounded theory. The data were gathered through in-depth interviews with 20 women who visited one of the counseling centers in Tehran, and are analyzed by theoretical coding.
In these interviews, women expressed their and their children’s exposure to emotional pressures and problems as the outcomes of the emotional divorce.
They followed different strategies confronting emotional divorce; three types of strategies can be distinguished based on women’s goals: relationship- centered, self-centered and child-centered. The relationship centered strategies are aimed to modify and improve marital relationship; the self-centered strategies are adopted for self detection and as an attempt to improve personal life; and the goal of child-centered strategies is to improve children’s conditions in different respects. Women’s strategies can also be distinguished based on their effects on marital relationship; we can divide them into positive, negative, and neutral strategies. Overall, the relationship-centered strategies are positive or neutral strategies; self-centered and child-centered strategies are negative or neutral strategies.
Findings show that women’s strategies are different and in some cases opposite, so if we are to treat emotional divorce, we should pay attention to the differences, and we cannot depend on the same treatment for different families.
