Background and Objective: Possible implications of psychological disorders for optimal functionality in daily life have not received enough attention in the literature. To fill this gap, the present study investigated the relationship between generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder and psychological well-being through the mediator variable of passionate obsessive love.

Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study, three hundred students of Lorestan University of Medical Sciences were recruited using multi-stage cluster sampling method from January to mid-February 2014. The questionnaires consisted of demographic questions, the Psychological Well-being Scale (PWBS-18), the Passionate Love Scale (PLS-30) and the Millon Clinical Multi axial Inventory-III (MCMI-III). Descriptive indices and structural equations model were used for data analysis.

Results: The results indicated that the relationship between psychological well-being with obsessive love
(r= -0.44), generalized anxiety disorder (r= -0.28) and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (r=-0/27) was negative and relatively weak (p<0.001). The results of structural equation modeling demonstrated that, as expected, this relationship was fully mediated by passionate obsessive love
.

Conclusion: These results indicate that passionate obsessive love may be an important factor through which the negative effects of generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder on psychological well-being are brought about. Psychologists could draw on these results in order to develop appropriate clinical techniques to improve romantic relationships in young people, and cultivate emotion management skills in order to manage the adverse effects of mental disorders.
