Objectives: The aim of the present study was to examine the factorial structure of marital satisfaction scale in staff members of Shahid Chamran University, Ahvaz, Iran. Method: 200 married staff members of Shahid Chamran University who were randomly selected from among the staff of the university, completed Mehrabian Marital Satis-faction Scale as well as Enrich Marital Satisfaction Ques-tionnaire. Results: Internal consistency of all the scale in women, men and the two extracted factors, indicated a high validity of the scale. Correlation coeficient between each scale item with the total score of the items  ranged between 0.06 to 0.88, and all (exept for item 10) were satistically significant (p<0.001). Concurrent validity coefficient between this scale and ENRICH Marital Satisfaction Questionnaire was 0.83. Principle Axis Factoring (oblique rotation) on Marital Satisfaction Scale accounted for 57.46% of the variance. The greater portion of this variance (45.64%) was accounted for by the first factor. Also, confirmatory factor analysis determined the two-factor model relative to the one-factor model. Conclusion: Regarding the satisfactory reliability and validity of Marital Satisfaction Scale, this scale could be useful in research settings and measuring couple satisfaction in consultation centers.
