Several studies have shown the destructive effects of anger as an emotion on quality of life. Meanwhile, the study and proper management of anger can have a significant positive impact on quality of life. The present study was conducted to examine the mediating effect of anger rumination on the relationship of the dimensions of anger and anger control with quality of life in male and female high school students in Damghan, Iran. This correlational study used stratified random sampling to examine 223 participants (136 girls and 87 boys) using the anger rumination scale, Spielberger’s State-Trait anger expression inventory and the 36-item short form quality of life questionnaire developed by ware and sherbourne. A significant relationship was observed between anger rumination and the dimensions of anger, but not between anger rumination and anger control. The results showed a significant negative correlation between anger rumination and quality of life. Differences were also observed between the girls and boys in terms of the dimensions of anger (state anger and trait anger and anger control (control-in and control-out), but not in terms of anger rumination and quality of life. The results showed that anger rumination affects anger expression and also that girls and boys are different in terms of anger control and anger expression.
