Study on marital adjustment

Transcendental Meditation Program and Marital Adjustment

Authors: Elaine N. Aron and Arthur Aron

Published: Psychological Reports, Volume 51, Issue, pp. 887-890

Methods: 17 married women who had received instruction in the Transcendental Meditation program were compared to 17 controls (matched for length of marriage, age and neighbourhood) on Locke’s Marital Adjustment Inventory. Interviewees did not know the study was related to meditation or that they were contacted because they were meditators.

Results: Subjects in the Transcendental Meditation group showed significantly greater marital satisfaction than controls: for only those reporting regular practice the effect was stronger. The Transcendental Meditation program may be preventive of marital discord.
