A three-questionnaire survey of the working individuals comprising 130 people, was carried out to elicit their views. The titles of the questionnaires were; Experienced in Closed Relationship Revised (ECR-R), Coping Resources Inventory (CRI) and Communication Pattern Questionnaires (CPQ). A multiple linear regression analysis was conducted to observe for moderation. Adult Attachments Styles have been found to have a wide range of positive effects on coping strategies and to result in an effective marriage. The results of this study are of interest to married couples striving to understand their adult attachment styles in order to cope better in times of conflict. Identification of conflict responses is assumed to provide guidance for marital intervention by counsellors or psychotherapist in attachment perspective.
