Abstract

The present study was designed to investigate the relationship between emotional intelligence and marital quality of life in pre and post- menopausal women. It was hypothesized that emotional intelligence would have positive relationship with marital quality of life in pre and post-menopausal women. Similarly it was hypothesized that emotional intelligence would positively predict marital quality of life in pre and post-menopausal women. It was also hypothesized that pre-menopausal women have significantly high emotional intelligence and better marital quality of life than post-menopausal women. Correlational research design was used to examine the proposed hypotheses. The sample comprised of pre and post-menopausal women, (N = 200) with age range of 35 years and above (M = 47.85, SD = 8.43). The demographic sheet, Schutte Scale of Emotional Intelligence Test (Schutte et al., 1998) and Menopause Specific Quality of Life questionnaire (Jacqueline et al., 1996) were used to assess correlation between study variables. The results were in line with the hypotheses and indicated that emotional intelligence was positively significantly correlated with marital quality of life. Furthermore, it indicated that emotional intelligence is a positive significant predictor of marital quality of life in pre and post-menopausal women. Results also revealed that pre-menopausal women have significantly high emotional intelligence and better marital quality of life than post-menopausal women. This study will be helpful in improving marital quality of life among menopausal women by improving their emotional intelligence.

Keywords: Emotional intelligence, quality of life, pre and post- menopausal women.
