Since emotion regulation processes have a lifelong and changeable structure, it is inevitable that these processes will be affected by interpersonal relationships. These interpersonal relationships include spousal relationships and can affect emotion regulation processes. In this context, the study aimed to carry out the validity and reliability studies of the Interpersonal Emotion Regula-tion Questionnaire: Co-Brooding and Co-Reappraisal. As a result of the exploratory factor anal-ysis conducted to check the consistency of the factor load distribution with the original form of the questionnaire, it was observed that the factor loads of the items varied between .66 and .87. As a result of the confirmatory factor analysis performed after the exploratory factor analysis, it was found that the model provided the necessary fit indices. While the co-reappraisal subscale has four items as in the original form, an item included in the co-brooding subscale was removed from the questionnaire because it disrupted the fit of the model. Thus, the questionnaire took its final form with a total of nine items and two subscales. The Cronbach alpha reliability coeffi-cients of the subscales of the questionnaire, the co-reappraisal and co-brooding, were respectively .88 and .76. In order to test the criterion-related validity of the questionnaire, Emotion Regulation Scale, Depression-Anxiety-Stress 21, and Dyadic Adjustment Scale were used. The findings showed that criterion-related validity is acceptable. The results of the study showed that the In-terpersonal Emotion Regulation Questionnaire: Turkish form of Co-Brooding and Co-Reappraisal with Spouse is a valid and reliable measurement tool.
