The Assertive behavior is represented in many behaviors that reflect positively on the personality of the self-affirming individuals, the Housewife who lacks Assertive skills in her daily life, fails to express her thoughts and feelings and fails to claim her rights. The Housewife should not stand powerless in front of the disputes that she faces inside and outside the family, but must intervene to solve them, because if she neglects the dispute or neglects to confront it, it may expand and grow and may turn into accumulations within the family and prevent the family from achieving its goals or the cooperation between its members to achieve those goals, the Housewife who can manage disputes inside and outside the family to a high degree with efficiency can make the family members highly cooperative and motivates them to achieve the best possible performance. Therefore, the current research aims to study the relationship between the Assertive behavior to the Housewife and the management of her marital disputes.
