Abstract
Objective: This study was conducted to determine the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic process on the marital adjustment and psychological well-being of married couples. The pandemic process causes various threats by affecting the life, relationships, and mental health of the individual, family, and society. Fear of catching the coronavirus and uncertainties about the future cause psychological problems, and these problems can sometimes disrupt marital adjustment when they change places and turn towards the spouse.
Methods: The research was conducted in a relational screening model to determine the variables that predict the marital adjustment of married individuals. The population of the research consists of 501 married individuals over the age of 18 who use social media and smartphones in Turkey. The data were obtained by the researchers by sharing the e-survey forms created from the personal information form, the marital adjustment test, and the psychological well-being scale on social media platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram.
Results: The participants’ mean score on the marital adjustment scale was 44.22±7.98 while the mean score on the psychological well-being scale was 38.72±14.08. It was determined that the marital adjustment and psychological well-being of the participants were above the mean. As a result of the statistical analysis, a positive and significant (r= 0.201; p=0.001) relationship was found between psychological well-being variables and marital adjustment.
Conclusion: As a result of the study, it was determined that the pandemic process negatively affected individuals' marital adjustment and psychological well-being.
