Nowadays, considering the increasing rate of divorce and its consequences on the society, it is crucial to investigate it in various dimensions. The method of this research is descriptive from the type of causal-comparative. The statistical population consists of all married and divorced women aged 20 to 35 years old. The sample size for each sub-group should be at least 15 persons in causal- comparison researches. But for providing external validity of the research and reducing the sampling error, the sample size of each sub-group was considered as 50 divorced and 50 married women. The convenience sampling was utilized in this study. For the collection of data, three standard questionnaires were utilized: Goldberg's General Health questionnaire, Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS), and Bell's adjustment questionnaire. Data were analyzed on both levels of descriptive and inferential statistics (Leven's test and t-test). Results indicate that divorced women in three dimensions of mental health, cognitive emotion regulation, and adjustment are significantly different with the married women. Because of low levels of mental health, cognitive emotion regulation and adjustment among divorced women, it is recommended to educate women on the border of divorce to improve their mental health, cognitive emotion regulation and adjustment because by reducing the divorce rate, these women would have less personal and social problems.
