Based on attachment theory, researches concluded that attachment styles influence marital quality. although researches support this correlation, some psychological factors are involved, mediating between them. The aim of the present study was to examine the mediating role of relationship obsessive-compulsive disorder (ROCD) in relation to marital quality and attachment styles in women. In this descriptive-correlational study, statistical population included all married women in Isfahan between winter and spring 2015. A sample of 195 women was examined who were selected through convenience sampling. Golombok-Rust Inventory of Marital State, Adult Attachment Questionnaire, and Relationship Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory were used as the research instruments. The results showed that the triple dimensions of attachment styles were significantly correlated with marital quality and ROCD. The results of hierarchical regression analysis showed that triple dimensions of ROCD played the role of mediation variable in the association between attachment styles and marital quality. Therefore, based on the obtained results, the association between attachment styles and marital quality is not as simple as a linear correlation and could be affected by ROCD.
