Abstract:There is little data concerning psychological aspects of Israeli Jewish & Arab couples. This study investigates Israeli Jewish & Arab minority couples from the perspective of the women involved in these relationships. It deploys qualitative and quantitative methods and findings are examined in relationship to the socio-political background in Israel. The qualitative investigation revealed a number of themes that emerged, such as the women's disturbed child backgrounds, varied motives for entering these relationships, antagonism from family, coping styles employed, and their enduring relationships. The findings are also examined in relation to existing literature on mixed couples. The quantitative study revealed significant differences between the study's sample and the general Israeli population including relationship quality and mental health status, which were evaluated via the Israeli Marital Quality Scale and the Brief Symptom Inventory. This study's findings indicate that women in Israeli Jewish & Arab relationships suffer significantly more symptoms than Israeli women in the general Israeli population in all dimensions, with the exception of obsessive-compulsive and interpersonal sensitivity. The findings also suggest that women in this study's sample group are happier with their spouses' characteristics, report better emotional communication, and, in general, score higher in perceived relationship quality than their counterparts, women in Israeli Jewish-Jewish and Arab-Arab couples. Both qualitative and quantitative data provide useful perspectives for working with and counselling other similar Israeli Jewish & Arab couples. Recommendations for future research are also given. It should be noted that, when used, Israeli Jewish & Arab relationship/couples refers to a stable relationship formed of heterosexual partners: one, the female, being an Israeli Jew, and the male an Israeli Arab.
