Then, 70 individuals who underscored the cut point were included in the research. Thompson and Walker Intimacy Scale and Sexual Satisfaction Questionnaire were two research tools in this contribution. Data were analyzed using repeated measure analysis of variance with SPSS 22 software.
 Results: Results of the repeated measures analysis of variance demonstrated that there was no significant difference between experimental and control groups in sexual satisfaction and marital intimacy in pre-test stage. In post-test and follow-up stages, there was a significant difference between the two groups in sexual satisfaction and marital intimacy (P<0.001).
