The results showed that the level of support fromhusbands to their wives enrolled at Al- Quds Open University was high, andthat there are significant differences in the level of support according to thevariables (specialization, and level of education of the husbands) . Results didnot prove the existence of statistically significant differences in the level ofsupport according to the variables (marital age, marital status, and numberof family members) , but they showed the existence of statistically significantrelationship between the level of support provided by husbands to their wivesenrolled at Al- Quds Open University and the level of household income, thecumulative average and academic achievement motivation.
