   Background and Purpose: marital adjustment is a kind of harmony and empathy in achieving common goals of life between husband and wife which leads to satisfaction from living together. Religion is considered as one of the most effective spiritual fulcrums which are able to provide the meaning of life in each moment of lifetime and rescue a person in special condition from suspension and meaninglessness by providing explanatory fulcrum. The main aim of this research is to study the relationship between religious orientation and marital adjustment among couples of Qom City .

    Materials and Methods : This is a correlation descriptive study. The study population included all the couples referred to counseling centers and psychological clinics of Qom City. So we selected 150 people who referred to counseling centers and psychological clinics of Qom City and volunteered to participate. The required information was collected using Azarbaijani’s Religious Orientation Q uestionnaire (2003) and EspalierDyadic Adjustment Scale (1976). Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient and regression.

    Results: findings show that there is a positive correlation between religious orientation and marital satisfaction(r=0 . 45, p>0 . 001). This means that religious orientation can predict marital adjustment. Religious orientation also has direct and significant relationship with dimensions of d yadic satisfaction (r=0.45, p>0 . 001), d yadic cohesion (r=0 . 41, p>0 . 001), dyadic consensus (r=0 . 40, p>0 . 001), affection expression (r=0 . 317, p> 0 . 001).

    Conclusion: since religious orientation can be effective in improving relationships and marital adjustment, it is recommended to take advantage of strengthening religious beliefs of couples and cause them to approach each other in counseling.
