Introduction:  Sometimes couples have problems and conflicts in the relationship leading them to divorce, which is a kind of social damage. Emotional divorce is considered as the first step in the divorce process, indicating a declining marital relationship.

The research data was analyzed using the statistical method of structural equation modeling and SPSS and pls third edition software.
Results:  The results showed that the direct effect of basic psychological needs on emotional divorce is -0.258 and marital expectations on emotional divorce is -0.632, that both of them are significant (P<0.001). Also, the indirect effect of marital expectations (-0.33) in the relationship between basic psychological needs and emotional divorce was significant (P<0.001).
Conclusion:  In general, it can be said that failure to satisfy basic psychological needs can lead to the formation of special expectations in married people, leading to emotional divorce.
