  Background and Aim: Marriage is a sacred, canonical and legal contract between a man and a woman in order to have a peaceful, lovely and dedicated life. The present study was performed aiming at comparing marriage satisfaction in the employees of two Birjand Universities. In addition, some pertaining factors to this satisfaction were evaluated.

  Materials and Methods: In this descriptive and analytical research which was undertaken between 2007 and 2008, 218 employees from Birjand University and Birjand University of Medical Sciences were selected through simple random sampling method. Means of data collection was ENRICH standard marriage satisfaction questionnaire to which demographic questions were also added. Data analysis was done by means of descriptive statistics, multifactorial variance analysis, multivariate variance analysis, and Pearson correlation coefficient.

  Results: There was no significant difference in marriage satisfaction between the two universities' employees (P=0.21). The most prevalent aspects of dissatisfaction among nine components of marriage satisfaction were sexuality and conflict resolution. About 22.5% of the employees were dissatisfied with their marital life and 10% of them had deep dissatisfaction. On the other hand, 65.5% of the employees had gained moderate satisfaction.

  Conclusion: Employees who are dissatisfied with their lives need specific family and spouse therapeutic interventions. Besides, it is suggested that employees with relative and moderate marital satisfaction would receive counseling to improve their marital relationships.
