Abstract: This study investigates marital satisfaction, emotional intelligence, and religious orientation among women with early marriage in Iran. The 'emotional intelligence scale', 'religious orientation scale' and 'marital satisfaction scale' were used and a rare set of data from 194 women with early marriage were collected. The results of Pearson's correlation showed a significant relationship between emotional intelligence and marital satisfaction (P < 0.001, r = 0.38), and age at marriage and marital satisfaction (P < 0.005, r = 0.20). The results of the multiple linear regression analysis showed that emotional intelligence (P < 0.001, B = 0.33) and age at marriage (P < 0.05, B = 0.90) are predictive of marital satisfaction among girls with early marriage in Iran and explain 16.4% of the variation of women's marital satisfaction. A greater understanding of the factors increasing or reducing the marital satisfaction may help the marital satisfaction of women with early marriage in Iran.
