The data were collected with Martial Adjustment Scale developed by Locke and Wallace (1959) and adapted to Turkish by Tutarel-Kışlak (1999), Tolerance Scale developed by Ersanlı (2011), and personal information form. The sample consisted of 300 married individuals which were 150 married women and 150 married men. 194 participants lived in urban areas and 106 participants lived in rural areas. The data were analysed with Spearman's Rho statistics and Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney U tests. The results of statistical analysis showed no significant difference between martial adjustment and tolerance levels of married individuals. Tolerance level of married individuals depends on gender; martial adjustment level of married individuals was different accounting for education level of individuals and their spouses, perceived happiness levels, and the living area variables. There was no significant difference between age, duration of marriage, and perceived socio-economic level and marital adjustment and tolerance levels.
