The present research aimed to investigate the relationship between religiosity, conflict resolution styles and family functioning in married couples. The sample consisted of (N = 41) married couples. It was hypothesized that there is likely to be a relationship between religiosity, conflict resolution styles and family functioning in married couples. Religious Faith Questionnaire (Plante & Boccaccini, 1997) and Scale of Human Rights (Amjad & Khawaja, 2012) were used to measure religiosity. Kurdek Conflict Resolution Style Inventory (Kurdek, 1994) was used to measure marital conflict resolution styles. Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scale (Olson, 2010) was used to measure family functioning. Religious Faith Questionnaire, Kurdek Conflict Resolution Style Inventory and Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scale were translated into Urdu. Purposive sampling was done to collect data. Pearson Product-Moment Correlation, t-test and regression were used for data analysis. The results showed that there was significant relationship between religiosity and family functioning. Significant relationship was found between conflict resolution styles and family functioning. Result showed that females use more conflict withdrawal as compared to males.
