In recent decades, many studies examined the role of schemas and emotion regulation in marriage dissatisfaction and divorce. But the psychological factors involved in emotional divorce have been ignored. The aim of present study is to Predicting couples’ emotional divorce based on early maladaptive schemas, and components of emotion regulation. The study populations were all the couples of Mehr and Lamerd cities. 165 people were selected using available sampling method after completing questionnaires of Gottman early maladaptive schemas, marital instability-divorce probability and Enrich marital satisfaction. Young Schemas Questionnaire-Short Form (YSQ-SF) was used to measure early maladaptive schemas and emotion regulation questionnaire by Gross and John were used to assess emotion regulation. The results were analysed using Pearson correlation and stepwise regression analysis. Results indicate that early maladaptive schemas of emotional deprivation, shame/ defect, failure, enmeshment, subjugation, self-sacrifice, emotional inhibition, and emotional suppression component in emotion regulation are related to emotional divorce. In stepwise regression analysis, best predictor of couples’ emotional divorce between early maladaptive schemas was "sacrifice" and then "emotional suppression". The early maladaptive schemas and emotion regulation can help to predict couples’ emotional divorce, and based on these models, an approach can be developed to prevent cold marital relationships and treat them based on schema therapy approach and management of emotion regulation and findings of this research can be applied in clinical and counseling setting to help couples in troubled environments and on the brink of divorce.
