The study sample consisted of (492) married of both sexes, randomly selected, and to achieve the objectives of the study, the researchers used the family atmosphere disorders scale prepared by Abdel Moaty (2006).

The results of the study indicated that there is  an apparent variation in the arithmetic averages and standard deviations of the dimensions of the family atmosphere  disorder scale (total degree and dimensions), where it was found that the level of family atmosphere  disorder from the point of view of married couples  came with  an average degree of (35.36) a meari deviation (10.94), while it was found that the most high dimensions in the target study group after family communication disorder with an arithmetic mean of (11.27) and a standard deviation of (3.63). Finally, it came after the disorder of relations between children with an arithmetic mean (8.17) and a standard deviation (2.27). The  results of the multiple gradual regression analysis showed that some variables contributed to explaining the statistically significant variance in the level  of family atmosphere disorders from the point of view of married people =, and the variable (number of children) explained the highest percentage  (226,%) while the  variable explained  the number of years of marriage (.218%) ,  and interpreted the level of economic income (0.039) and interpreted the variable of educational level (0.020), which is the lowest ratio
