The participants were recruited by convenient sampling. Data was collected by sexual satisfaction and marital satisfaction questionnaires and analyzed using SPSS-PC (ver. 14).

  Results: Marital satisfaction was significantly related to sexual satisfaction (p=0/00). Moreover, there was a significant relationship between sexual satisfaction and age difference (p=0/04), duration of marriage (p=0/05), and drug abuse of the participants (p=0/007). Among all variables which have been tested in this study, only age difference was shown to have a significant relationship with marital satisfaction (0/00).
