Abstract：By adopting a micro- sociological research perspective and a community study methodology , this paper analyzes the psychological impacts of rural husbands'labour migration on their left-behind wives and thein-depth causes .It reveals that most left-behind womenhave perceivedhigh mental stress , and the separated marital life have put women in sexual suppression and thus have a strong feeling of loneliness . Meanwhile , after the husbands'migration , women have obviously increased negative emotions . Endangering accidents , sexual harassments and worries about husbands lead to a very low sense of safety on the part of left-behind women .As a family strategy ,the marital relation of a floating husband andleft-behind wife weakens considerably the role of affectionate satisfaction in rural marriages . To reduce the negative psychological impacts on left-behind women , the paper recommends that husbands shall make efforts to provide more affectionate supports and comforts for their wives ,and rural communities shall organize mutual help groups among women , enrich public cultural life and enhance community security .
