Abstract

This study was conducted to assess the association between tolerance for disagreement, psychological distress, and quality of life among married couples. In the current study, the correlational research design was used and a total of 200 married couples were selected through a purposive sampling technique from Faisalabad city. The following scales were used to measure the variables under investigation; Tolerance for Disagreement Scale, Kessler Psychological Distress Scale, and World Health Organization Quality of Life Scale. The data was analyzed through the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS, 23). Results indicated that there was a significant negative relationship between psychological distress and quality of life among married couples. Tolerance for disagreement was a significant predictor of quality of life and Psychological distress. The findings of the current study verified all three hypotheses which were accepted at P<.01 level. This research fulfills the literature gap and it can also be helpful to psychotherapists for couple and marriage counseling and developing several therapeutic strategies.
