Abstract Background and purpose: Awareness on quality of life of infertile couple and their level of marriage satisfaction is an important issue which could be also helpful in planning effective health programs. This study investigated the relationship between quality of life and marriage satisfaction in infertile couples attending Hazrat-e Maryam Fertility Center and Imam Khomeini Hospital in Sari. Materials and methods: This descriptive-analytical study was done in 138 couples. Data was collected using ENRICH questionnaire and WHOQOL (quality of life assessment). Descriptive and inferential statistics were performed to analyze the data. Results: In factor analysis physical dimensions had a strong load on marital satisfaction (0.41,T-value=4.58). But the factor loading for mental dimensions was not significant (-0.038, T-value=-0.03). Conclusion: In this study no correlation was found between mental and environmental dimensions with marital satisfaction, however, these dimensions could indirectly influence other dimensions, thereby affecting marital satisfaction. Hence, health system should implement efficient interventions to enhance the quality of life in infertile couples.
