Summary/Abstract: The problem of shame in social sciences was mostly perceived as the subject of interest of psychologists. Contemporary research, especially that of Thomas Scheff , presents the productivity of a sociological approach to shame. Treating shame as a result of the violation of social bonds and discernment of two types of shame – unconscious and conscious – allow for a productive employment of the discussed approach in understanding the phenomena of violence, depression, and conflict.What is characteristic in the analysis of marital quarrels is that they tend to be of a repetitive and permanent character and include the components of abasement, alienation, and aggression. The triad of shame/anger constituting the explanatory fundament of the phenomenon is the basis of the analysis.
