Introduction: Pregnancy is an important event that occurs in the lives of most females.
Marital satisfaction is a very important aspect in this period that influences quality of life
and physical and mental health of females and their children. Marital satisfaction is influenced
by a variety of factors. In this study, we investigated the factors influencing marital
satisfaction during this period.
Methods: This descriptive study was conducted on 120 cases that were randomly selected
among pregnant females attending clinics of Asadabad during year 2015. Data was gathered
by an information form, Enrich Marital Satisfactions Questionnaires and demographic
questionnaires. Questionnaires were filled by the participants. The data was analyzed by
SPSS 16 software using mean and standard deviation, independent t test, and Analysis of
Variance (ANOVA).
Results: Level of marital satisfaction in pregnant females was medium and high. Sub
scales of conflict resolution and character issues and equality were lower than the rest of
the scales. Subscales of ideal distortion, relatives and friends, and religious orientation were
higher than the rest of the scales. Also, there was a significant relationship between education,
career, husband's occupation, household income, job stability of the spouse, planned
pregnancy, infertility history, length of marriage, age of the woman and marital satisfaction
(P < 0.05).
Conclusions: Life skills counseling can be effective in improving marital satisfaction. Demographic
variables were predictors of marital satisfaction in pregnant females.
