In this study, the relationships between constructive thinking, attributions and marital satisfaction in married individuals were investigated and tried to reveal the predictive role of constructive thinking on attributions and marital satisfaction. Correlational research design was used in the study. The study group of the research consisted of a total of 202 married individuals, 142 females and 60 males. In order to collect data Constructive Thinking Inventory, Relational Attribution Measure and Marital Life Scale were used. Pearson Moments Correlation Coefficient Analysis and Multiple Regression Analysis were used in the analysis of the data. According the results of multiple regression analysis in order to reveal what extent to constructive thinking predicts attributions it is seen that the model as a whole is meaningful and the variables in the model all explain 20% of the total variance of attributions. According to the results, emotional coping and superstitious thinking have highest contribution on the model. According to the results of the multiple regression analysis in order to reveal what extent to constructive thinking and attributions together predict marital satisfaction, it is seen that the model as a whole is meaningful. The variables in the model all explain 47% of the total variance of marital satisfaction. Causal attributions, total attributions and behavioral coping have highest contribution on the second model.
