Typology of emotional divorce in the city of Mashhad is the aim of this study. It was done through survey method and cluster sampling. Three semi-structured questionnaires were distributed among 30 couples that had been selected via purposive sampling. Based on the above-mentioned technique, the scores were categorized in five-dimensional categories of emotional divorce, namely I-we balance, shared activities, proximity, independency-dependency, and faithfulness. The results show that 35% of the sample members were out of balance and were at the two endpoints of the continuum, and other members of the sample fell into the two categories of "more connected" and "more integrated". The women scores were higher in all five-dimensional categories of emotional divorce.
