It used the King’s Spiritual Intelligence Inventory and Philip Carter’s Life Satisfaction Inventory to measure the variables. The research was designed according to the correlational method. For statistical analysis of data, it used the Pearson’s correlation method, multivariate regression and independent t-test. The results of this study showed a meaningful relation between life satisfaction and spiritual intelligence. There was also a relation between life satisfaction in the two groups of married and unmarried females, however there was no difference in terms of spiritual intelligence in these two groups.
