The purpose of this study is to identify the relationship between religious adherence and marital conflict among the couples and compare them regarding the variable of gender. The data were collected from the sample (391 couples) which is selected from the couples in Semnan province by multistage sampling. The participants responded to the questionnaires of religious adherence and marital conflict. Data-analysis was done with the help of Pearson correlation coefficient and SPSS software. The results showed that there is a meaningful relationship between the variables of religious adherence and marital conflict as well as their subscales (p<0.05). The results from one-way ANOVA also revealed that there is a significant difference among the scores of subscales of religious adherence and non-adherence and also the scores of subscales of decreasing cooperation, increasing emotional reactions, separating financial affairs, and the effective relations among couples. According to these analyses, it can be said that the people with high religious adherence know the marriage as a sacred issue and a responsibility. They also face low marital conflict because of having marital commitment.
