dc.description.abstract The aim of this research was to develop a psycho-educational program to form a framework for educational psychologists to promote and facilitate the mental health of women who are unhappy in their marriages. The assumption is made that a mentally healthy and happy mother exercises a great influence on the rest of her family. The circumstances in unhappy long-term marriages appear to be a stressful situation which is associated with much uncertainty and confusion. It seems that women in such a situation tend to withdraw in order to attempt to address their pain, confusion and uncertainty in isolation, without being effective in solving their problems. Affluent women’s mental health in the situation of a long-term, unhappy marriage seems to be characterized by a spectrum of unpleasant emotions, an identity crisis, an unhealthy dynamic in their relationship with their life partner and the use of a number of defence mechanisms to ease the pain. Lack of knowledge regarding the specific ways in which their marriage upsets them leads to misperceptions in women. Long-term unhappiness and uncertainty in isolation can also lead to mental disorders that may assume alarming proportions. Clinical disorders are definitely not excluded. en
