Moreover, Alfa Cronbach coefficient and split-half -by modifying Spearman-Brown- were used to validate the test.
Result: The findings show that Taylor-Johnson scale for Iranian couples and families has high correlation with marriage satisfaction ENRICH scale. Cronbach alpha coefficient was 0.92 and validity coefficient of split-half of the test was 0.75 which is significant.
