In this study, it is aimed to examine Henry Grunebaum's Theory of Marital Bonds and the scenes of "The Story of Us" film with the basic concepts of marital bond theory. Towards this end, it was tried to explain the "attachment /caregiving and care receiving bond, the friendship/partnership bond, the desire/sexual activity bond, the decision /commitment bond, the social network bond" in the Marital Bonds Theory. Later on, basic information about the film and the Jordan family was included in order to better understand the subject of filmin and the family. Then the Marriage Bonds were created under five headings and the stages related to the marriage were evaluated. As a result of the evaluation, we can say that the Jordan couple has a great deal of friendship/partnership and decision / commitment, and that these relationships are important roles in the continuation of their relationship. It is also seen that the bonds of sexuality and family / social relations are also important supporters of our partnership. However, we can say that the beliefs of the parents of the spouses in relation to attachment/ caregiving and care receiving bond negatively affect their relationships and that they also deal with the energy they have received from other connections. Film's has generally observed to provide good examples for all subordinates bonds of the marital bond theory
