Abstract: 

Background and Aim: One of the most important and underlying marital problems in couples is marital disillusionment. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the validity and factor structure of the scale of the Marital Disillusionment Scale.
Materials and Methods: A sample of 188 teachers was selected with convenience sampling of students of Karaj. To calculate the convergent and divergent validity, attitudes toward infidelity scale, Kensas marital satisfaction scale, attachment styles & marital forgiveness were used. In order to assess the first order confirmatory factor of the marital disillusionment scale, the weighted lowest squares (WLS) and to assess the adequacy of the model to the data, the parameters of RMR,
 RMSEA, CFI, AGFI, GFI, c2, c2/df, and ?c2 were used.
Results: Factor structure of the marital disillusionment scale was confirmed with using confirmatory factor analysis. Cronbach’s alpha and retest coefficients were 92.0 and 85.0 respectively. Correlation analysis showed that the marital disillusionment scale has a significant positive correlation with attitudes toward infidelity (p<0.01), avoidance/resentment (p<0.01), avoidant attachment (P<0.05), ambivalent attachment subscales (P<0.01), which indicates convergent validity and has a significant negative correlation with the Kensas marital satisfaction scale and forgiveness (P<0.01), which indicates it’s divergent validity.
Conclusion: First-order factor structure of "marital disillusionment scale" showed better fitness with the observed data. Confirmatory factor structure, reliability and validity of the marital disillusionment scale for research applications and clinical diagnoses were acceptable.
