Marital distress and increasing tendency towards divorce causes extreme harm for the children of divorce, divorcees, families and the entire society. Evaluating effective ways of encountering divorce is thus of paramount importance. The present study aimed to examine the effectiveness of family therapy based on Bowen’s family system theory and logo therapy in marital life quality (marital adjustment) and tendency for divorce among divorce seeking clients. The statistical population included divorce applicants referring to Sanandaj counseling centers in Fall and Winter of 1396. 36 male and female applicants were randomly selected and assigned to experimental and control groups (12 each). The Divorce Tendency Questionnaire (DTQ) and the Revised Dyadic Adjustment Scale (RDAS) were used to gather the data. Each group received 8 one- hour weekly family therapy training based on the Bowen’s family systems and logo therapy. Repeated measures tests showed that both logo therapy and Bowen’s family systems could significantly enhance dyadic adjustment level and its components (agreement, satisfaction, and dyadic coherence) and reduce tendency towards divorce. Also, results of the BONFERRONI post hoc test showed that family therapy based on logo therapy was more effective in reducing divorce tendency and Bowen’s family systems theory was more effective in increasing dyadic adjustment.
