Abstract: 

The present study aimed at investigating various dimensions of emotional and spiritual intelligence in discordant and well-adjusted couples. To this end, 45 individuals (30 women and 15 men) who referred to the Justice Center of Zahedan and sought divorce and 50 individuals (31 women and 19 men), whom were considered as well- adjusted couples, were selected through random sampling. In this study, the emotional intelligence bar-on and the King Spiritual Intelligence questionnaire were applied. To analyze the data, the Pearson’s Correlation method, Regression analysis, and T-test were used. The findings of the current study indicated that there was a significant correlation between emotional intelligence and spiritual intelligence in both well-adjusted couples (p=.004, r=0.37**) and discordant couples (p=.009, r=0.43**). The results of the Regression Analysis demonstrated that in couples who were about to get divorce, there was a negative significant relation between interpersonal components and coping with stress which is one of the emotional intelligence components. The results of this study demonstated that in well-adjusted couples, the emotional and spiritual intelligence were in a better state, compared to those in discordant couples. Moreover, emotional awareness, self-expression, self-respect, self-actualization, and independence were lower in those who were about to get divorce. The results also showed that discordant couples were less likely to tolerate life problems and stresses.
