In this research, selected samples filed out Young’s primary maladaptive schemas, Beck’s cognitive insight, and Enrich’s married satisfaction questionnaires. Data analyses by using multivariate variance analysis showed that divorced women were different from normal counterparts except in approval-seeking/recognition seeking, entitlement/grandiosity schemas. In addition, two groups were different in cognitive insights, but they were not different in thoughtful subscale. The primary maladaptive schemas and cognitive insight could lead to marital dissatisfaction. This model as a preventive approach can help problematic spouses in clinical settings.
