To test the research hypotheses Kruskal-Wallis Test and Spearman Correlation Coefficients were used. Findings showed that marital instability in the couples of applicant of divorce are more than normal couples and marital conflict in normal couples are more than couples of applicant of divorce. There is a direct relationship between early maladaptive schemas and marital conflict in the couples of applicant of divorce and normal couples and early maladaptive schemas and marital instability in the couples of applicant of divorce.
