Social support is associated with numerous psychological benefits, such as improved self-confidence, sense of empowerment, efficiency, and quality of life. Marital adjustment is the state in which there is an overall feeling between husband and wife, of happiness and satisfaction with their marriage and with each other. Present study aimed at examining social support and marital adjustment in married working women. The demographic data sheet, Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS) and Marital Adjustment Questionnaire were administered on 64 married working women participants age ranging from 25-40 years. The result revealed that family, friends and overall social support were significantly correlated with the marital adjustment in married working women. These finding can be used to remove marital adjustment difficulties prevailing in the society.
