Objectives: One stage of divorce is emotional divorce, in which, couples live separately under the same roof. This situation seems to happen for most nurses, due to the job conditions, working long hours, stressful job and low salary, as well as the impact of workplace stress on marital relations. This article was intended to assess the rate of emotional divorce among nurses who worked in hospitals of Rasht, Iran.

Materials and Methods: This was a descriptive cross-sectional study, for which 382 nurses from hospitals of Rasht were selected by the way of quota and random sampling. The desired survey consisted of a 2-part questionnaire: demographic information, and Gottmann?s emotional divorce scale. Results were analyzed using SPSS software (version 19.0), and t test, analysis of variance (ANOVA), and logistic regression were used. P < 0.05 and CI = 95% were considered significant.

Results: The results showed that the participation rates for women and men were 93.5% and 6.5%, respectively. Moreover, the rate of emotional divorce among nurses who participated in this study was 7.6%. The main predictive variables for emotional divorce were living with spouse?s family, having relationship with family members, and attempt to divorce.

Conclusions: Although the results suggested low rate of emotional divorce among nurses who lived in Rasht, it is recommended that appropriate ways be used for improving a life of greatness and emotional support of couples, and also improving the nurses? quality services for calmness in married life, to decrease this low percentage with regard to the importance of this subject.
