Abstract This critical review of the literature examines marriage after traumatic brain injury. Studies reporting information on marital stability rates and studies examining the quality of marriages through the assessment of at least 1 relational domain have been included for review. Available findings are presented along with information on methodological limitations and knowledge gaps. A rationale for the adoption of a marriage and family therapy framework to clarify remaining inconsistencies is presented. Furthermore, specific marriage and family therapy relational models and corresponding measurement instruments are outlined. Finally, suggestions for future research and potential implications for brain injury rehabilitation outcomes are discussed.
