Sažetak
PTSD in war veterans and its complex emotional and behavioral characteristics affect veterans’ partners and the quality of their relationships. Partners of war veterans can also be traumatized by war and can develop PTSD. The study explored how post-traumatic stress disorder affect’s marital quality and satisfaction in war veterans’ wives suffering from PTSD. The Harvard Trauma Questionnaire (HTQ) and Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS)encompassed 154 war veterans and their wives who had been treated at Mostar Clinical Hospital in Bosnia and Herzegovina for combat-related PTSD as well as 77 veterans and their wives who did not suffer from PTSD. The results indicate that wives of PTSD-affected veterans have low marital quality, partner relationships are more complex when the wife also suffers from PTSD and, in such cases, marital quality is even lower. The results highlight the importance of recognizing PTSD in wives of traumatized veterans, as well as the importance of family-oriented approaches in the treatment of PTSD.
