This study aims to identify the prevailing thinking patterns of both spouses according to Herman's theory. To ascertain these patterns, a descriptive approach based on the exploratory descriptive method most suitable for the study was employed. The study was conducted on a sample of (60) spouses selected through simple random sampling. Using the data collection tool represented by the Ned Herman Thinking Styles Inventory, statistical methods such as frequency and percentage distribution, mean, and standard deviation were employed. The predominant thinking pattern among wives is Style (C), where individuals associated with this thinking style tend to be empathetic towards people and events. They rely on intuition and approach problems emotionally rather than logically. The predominant thinking pattern among husbands is Style (B), characterized by a preference for conventional thinking methods, organization, an appreciation for orderly facts, a desire for stability, attention to detail, and an ability for operational planning.
