Introduction: The burden of taking care of patients with psychotic disorders can increase stress and reduce mental health, quality of life and marital satisfaction. Aim: The purpose of this study was to compare mental health, resilience and marital satisfaction in women with schizophrenia and mood disorder with spouses. Method: The research method was descriptive-analytic and the statistical population consisted of the spouses of all male patients admitted in Rasht psychiatric hospital in Rasht, Iran during the period from 1394 to 1395. They were diagnosed with psychotic disorders. 187 women were selected using purposeful sampling and 187 normal-wife women were selected and completed three questionnaires including mental health check list, Enrique's Conner, Davidson and marital satisfaction questionnaires. SPSS-22 software and multivariate analysis of covariance analysis were used to analyze the data. Results: The research showed that there was a significant difference between two groups in terms of mental health (t = 4.387). Women with psychosis spouses had more symptoms than those with healthy husbands under the mental health components. The survival rate of women with menopausal psychosis was lower than normal group (t = 3.231) (P = 0.001). The components of marital satisfaction were significant at the level of 0.05. This indicates a low level of marital satisfaction among the women compared to the peer group. Conclusion: Responsibility for living among women with schizophrenic wife has been more than bipolar disorder due to a severe decline in these patients' performance. These psychological stresses have led to a decrease in quality of life, persistence and dissatisfaction with marital life, which led to a decrease in mental health they will be.
