Summary/Abstract: The article shows that the factors preventing the breakdown of marriage are a mature personality, the ability to communicate and solve conflicts, religiosity, self-development and the family background. The first element is a mature personality: emotional stability, responsibility, mature motivation and correct hierarchy of values. Proper communication allows the spouses to share their experiences, know each other better, build an atmosphere of openess and security. Religiosity allows one to create a dialogue with God and another person, as well as a non egocentric attitude, which places God at the centre of life. The readiness for self-development does not allow spouses to hide behind their immature mechanism of defense against weaknesses and mistakes. The final factor is the family background, which is a natural space for the proper shaping of all previous elements.
