  29. 29. DISCUSSION<br />This hypothesis was formulated keeping the birth order theory along with the theory of Toman, (1976) and Leman, (1998) both the theorists believe that the opposite birth order of husband and wife leads to more healthy relationship in order to avoid rank conflict and to embrace the earned birth order in the family of in-laws. <br />
  30. 30. The opposite earned birth order is the one for which an individual strives throughout the sib ship. This means that by observing the overly achieved first-born, last-born would more likely to be associated with his/her older sibling in order to encash the deprived trait of him/her.<br />
  31. 31. Therefore in couples of opposite birth order, both partners will be able to associate and share their weak and strong traits with each other that would result in solution of rank conflict.<br />
  32. 32. CONCLUSION<br />It is concluded that there is an effect of birth order onmarital adjustability. It is noted that hypothesis was statistically significant and it can be safely concluded that couples of opposite birth order have high marital adjustability as compared to couples of same birth order.<br />
