Abstract
Marital adjustment is the state in which there is an overall feeling in husband and wife of happiness and satisfaction
with their marriage and with each other. Emotional maturity is the ability of the person to assess a situation or
relationship and act according to what is best for oneself and for the other person in the relationship. Emotions play
a vital role in the marital life of an individual and one requires adequate emotional maturity to lead an
effective life. A happy and well adjusted marital life is the basis of a stable family. In view of the significance of the
above, the present study was an attempt to understand marital adjustment and emotional maturity among couples in
Kerala. The participants were 60 couples (N=120) selected from Thrissur district, Kerala. Emotional Maturity Scale
developed by Yashvir Singh and Mahesh Bhargava (2010) and Marital Adjustment Questionnaire constructed and
standardized by Pramod Kumar and Kanchana Rohtagi (1999) was used for data collection. The results revealed
there is a significant difference between the couples. The husbands had better marital adjustment than their wives.
Types of marriage of the couples have significant impact on their marital adjustment and emotional maturity.

Key words: Marital adjustment, emotional maturity, couples.
