Introduction: Attachment is one of the most important factors influencing marital satisfaction, therefore, this study aimed at investigating the correlation between attachment styles and marital satisfaction among working nurses.
Methods: The study had a cross-correlative design. The study population consisted of all nurses at university hospitals of Khorramabad during year 2014, and 150 individuals were selected by the stratified random sampling method. Data were collected through questionnaires, including adult attachment and Enrich marital satisfaction. Using descriptive statistics, such as mean and standard deviation, and inferential statistics, such as Pearson's correlation and regression analysis, the data were analyzed with the SPSS version 20 software.
Results: Pearson correlation coefficient showed that there was a positive correlation between marital satisfaction and secure attachment (r = 0.38, P = 0.001) and with avoidance attachment (r = -0.25, P = 0.001), yet there was no correlation between marital satisfaction and ambivalent attachment style (r = -0.063, P = 0/378). The regression results also showed that about 40% of the variance attachment styles explained marital satisfaction; therefore, secure attachment styles with beta-beta avoidance of 0.322 and – 0.132 were effective in predicting results.
Conclusions: Given that marital satisfaction is predicted by attachment styles, it is important to recognize the attachment styles of nurses in order to improve their marital satisfaction.
