Many factors increase the conflict between couples and increase stress, leading to poor health.

The results of hierarchical regression showed that socioeconomic status (Higher, middle, and lower), location (rural ; urban areas), marital conflict, family relationship, and relationship satisfaction were significant predictors of general health. Further, location, family relationship, and relationship satisfaction were significant predictors of psychological well-being.
