The family is a fundamental component of society, and marital satisfaction is the main characteristic of a healthy family.
The aim of this cross-sectional research was to assess marital satisfaction in medical staff in Tehran, with a special focus
on gender differences. Data were collected from 653 medical staff using sociodemographic questions and the ENRICH marital
satisfaction questionnaire. The results indicated that marital satisfaction was significantly higher in men than in women.
There was a negative correlation between age and marital satisfaction in women. Educational level was associated with marital
satisfaction in both genders. Number of children was correlated with marital satisfaction in both men and women. Gender differences
in marital satisfaction were revealed, and all sociodemographic factors showed significant relationships, with at least one
subscale of marital satisfaction. This study provides a general view of marital satisfaction in Iranian medical professionals
as a group with a stressful job.
