Background & Aims: Marriage is the first and most important stage of the family life cycle and is considered the most important factor in creating a healthy society and a very important phenomenon. In this category, choosing a spouse as the cornerstone of family formation is very important and in fact all the emotions, the reproductive process, educating the next generation, the responsibility to meet the future needs and challenges of our lives depend on it (1). Criteria for choosing a spouse are perceptions of the characteristics that are required of an imaginary mistress or potential spouse, and many of these perceptions are clearly related to emotions. Adequate information about your plans and tasks in your life together will help you start a successful life. Awareness of couples about what strengthens or destroys the relationship in married life, helps them succeed in their life together. Psychologists have stated about the criteria for choosing a spouse that there are different ideas in choosing a spouse (2). Resilience is one of the factors that can improve the psychological functions of the family in the form of thinking, mood and behavior, and consequently increase the stability of married life. Family resilience provides a theoretical framework for understanding families' capacity to cope with crises, challenges, grievances, their successful resolution, and adjustment. When a crisis or stress arises, families try to balance their needs and capacities (3). How families make a difference depends on the skills and resources available to them to overcome the crisis, which creates different levels of resilience. On the other hand, the family itself is often a protective factor in resilience (4). Given that marriage and family formation is a matter in which the individual's will is involved, and since the foundation stones of any society are families, any factor affecting the health of the family has an impact on the health of society. Also, doing this research looks more tangible and specific by looking at the statistics related to divorce. Therefore, according to the mentioned cases, the purpose of this research is to predict family resilience on the stability of marital life.
Methods: The present study was in the category of descriptive correlational research that was conducted by field method in the statistical population of all married couples in Tehran in the second six months of 2019. In order to perform sampling of the present community, first, according to the size of the research community, all cultural centers and houses in the neighborhood of municipal areas in Tehran were identified and randomly selected from two municipal areas and two cultural centers from each area were randomly selected; After selecting the cultural center, married men and women were selected as a multi-stage cluster and all participants who were eligible to enter the study, such as living in the municipality of Tehran, no acute or chronic psychiatric disorders, minimum cycle education, age range 25 Up to 50 years and willingness to participate in the research were used as required subjects in completing the questionnaire. To prevent a drop in the sample, a total of 400 married men and women were asked to answer the questionnaires, and finally, after removing incomplete questionnaires, 379 questionnaires remained to analyze the data. Research data were analyzed using SPSS-24 statistical software and stepwise regression method.
Results: The collected data were analyzed in descriptive and inferential sections. In the demographic data section, statistical data analysis showed that the mean age of the subjects was 38.29 with a standard deviation of 7.09 and the average age of their cohabitation was 12.5 with a standard deviation of 6.59. According to the results of the regression model, the effect of family resilience on the stability of marital life with a value of F = 18.69 at the level of p<0.01 is significant. The multiple correlation coefficient of this model is equal to 0.36 and the coefficient of predicting the stability of marital life based on family resilience is equal to 0.13, which means that 13% of changes in the stability of marital life can be determined by the variable components of family resilience. Is a prediction. In the following, Table 3 of the standard beta coefficients shows the effect of variable components of family resilience on the stability of marital life. Also, the variables of family resilience have an effect on the stability of marital life of the sample group at the level of p<0.01. The standard beta of the effectiveness of marital stability has been reported from the components of problem solving as 0.14, social dimension as -0.18 and acceptance as -0.22. Therefore, according to the obtained results, the seventh sub-hypothesis of the study on the effect of family resilience on the stability of marital life was confirmed.
Conclusion: The purpose of this study was to predict family resilience on the stability of married life. In explaining the present findings, it should be stated that resilience refers to the human ability to adapt to disasters or severe pressures, to overcome and even strengthen by those experiences. This trait is supported, developed, and crystallized as a positive trait by a person's inner ability and social skills and interaction with the environment (5). Families with resilience are resilient, resilient, adapt to changes in the environment, and quickly recover after stressors are eliminated (6). In other words, family resilience is the individual, family, and social ability to cope with and return to the situations or stresses of a miserable life that increase the ability to respond to future tragedies and to adapt positively in response to circumstances. It gets bad. Researchers also believe that resilience is a form of restoration with positive emotional, emotional and cognitive consequences. But because of the characteristics of resilient families, the ability to create self-regulation or self-control. In general, personality traits such as positive self-concept, sociability, intelligence, adequacy in educational work, autonomy, self-esteem, good communication, problem-solving skills, and mental and physical health (7). Therefore, it can be said that a stable married life is affected by the ability to withstand. It is suggested that couples living in unstable families be taught strategies to increase family resilience to reduce their conflicts and increase the sustainability of their lives. In general, it can be said that resilience is one of the most important factors in marital life and its stability.
