This study examined the relationships between marital quality, individualistic-collectivistic tendencies and divorce attitudes of married individuals. In total, 514 married men and women from 36 cities in Turkey participated. The results of hierarchical regression analyses showed that a higher level of collectivism in both men and women was an important positive predictor of marital quality. Among women only, higher scores on divorce attitudes significantly predicted worse marital quality. There were some gender and age-group differences regarding marital quality and individualistic tendencies. Marital quality was higher in men than in women and also higher in participants aged between 19 and 39 than in older participants. Individualistic tendencies were also higher in the younger group than in the older group. The study results suggest that women in Turkey had fewer opportunities than men, that social changes that positively affect women’s perceptions of their identity had not yet occurred, and that family ties transcended class lines and socioeconomic conditions in collectivist societies.
