Background: Divorce is an obscure phenomenon in marital life which has led many researchers to investigate its related factors. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate demographic, social, and personality factors in women with early divorce versus those with late divorce. Methods: Themethodof the present study is cross sectional, the statistical population of the study consisted of 389 divorcedwomen who referred to the family court in the city of Ilam in 2016 and 2017. Among these, 196 were selected by simple random sampling methodas the sample of the study; data were collected using demographic information questionnaireandNEOfive-factor inventory (NEO-FFI). Finally, the data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and logistic regression analysis using SPSS software. Results: Based on the results of this study, women’s outside home employment (P < 0.005) and religious beliefs at the beginning of marriage reduced early life divorce (P = 0.038). The results also showed that considering the personality factors there was not a significant difference between the two groups (P = 0.234). Conclusions: Results showed that early marriage, lack of children, and living with the husband’s father family are predictors of early- life divorce, also residence dissatisfaction, neuroticism, conscientiousness traits, and the desire for new experiences can be other predictors for early life divorce in women. © 2019, Author(s). © 2019, Author(s).
