چکیده

هدف: تعارضات دوپاره نقش کلیدی در کیفیت رابطه‌ی زناشویی دارند. هدف این مطالعه، بررسی نقش میانجی، رضایتمندی جنسی در ارتباط بین تعارضات دوپاره و کیفیت رابطه‌ی زناشویی است.
روش: روش پژوهش توصیفی از نوع همبستگی بود. جامعه آماری شامل افراد متأهل ساکن شهر تهران بود. تعداد 308 نفر به صورت نمونه‌گیری در دسترس با استفاده از لینک آنلاین پاسخگویی به‌عنوان نمونه انتخاب شد. ابزار پژوهش شامل سه پرسشنامه رضایت زناشویی، شاخص رضایت جنسی و پرسشنامه خود انتقادی بود. داده‌ها با روش مدل سازی معادلات ساختاری در نرم اقزار Amos تحلیل گردید.
یافته‌ها: تحلیل داده­ها نشان داد که رضایتمندی جنسی و خود مطمئن با تمامی مؤلفه‌های رضایت زناشویی و نمره کل آن رابطه مثبت معنادار و خود ناکافی و خود متنفر با تمامی مؤلفه‌های رضایت زناشویی رابطه منفی معنادار دارد. خود ناکافی و خود متنفر نیز با رضایتمندی جنسی رابطه منفی معنادار دارد. همچنین که خود مطمئن با رضایتمندی جنسی رابطه مثبت معنادار دارد. تحلیل معادلات ساختاری نشان داد که خود متنفر و خود مطمئن فاقد اثر معنادار است. برای خود ناکافی اثر مستقیم و غیرمستقیم به ترتیب با اندازه بتا 22/0- و 12/0- بعد از اصلاح مدل معنادار است (05/0 p <). با این تفاسیر، تعارضات دوپاره می‌تواند یک متغیر مهم و مرتبط با کیفیت رضایت زناشویی باشد، چرا که علاوه بر ارتباط با آن، به واسطه اثرگذاری بر رضایتمندی جنسی می‌تواند تبیین‌کننده تغییرات کیفیت رابطه‌ی زناشویی باشد.

چکیده [English]

Purpose: Split conflicts play a key role in the quality of the marital relationship. The purpose of the study was to investigate the mediating role of sexual satisfaction in the relationship between split conflicts and the quality of marital relationships.
Method: The research method was descriptive-correlational. The statistical population included all married people living in Tehran. Of this population, 308 people were selected using the convenience sampling method and completed the online survey icluding three questionnaires; Marital Satisfaction Questionnaire, Sexual Satisfaction Index, and Self-Critical Questionnaire. The data were analyzed using structural equation modeling by Amos software.
Findings: The results of this study showed that sexual satisfaction and reassured-self have significant positive relationships with all components of marital satisfaction and its total score and inadequate-self and hated-self have significant negative relationships with all components of marital satisfaction. Inadequate-self and hated-self have significant negative relationships with sexual satisfaction. Moreover, reassured-self has a significant positive relationship with sexual satisfaction. The structural equation modeling analysis showed that hated-self and reassured-self have no significant effect. For inadequate-self, the direct and indirect effects were found significant with -0.22 and -0.12 beta sizes, respectively, after modifying the model (p <.01). This is concluded that split conflicts can be an important variable related to the quality of marital satisfaction, because in addition to being related to it, it can explain changes in the quality of the marital relationship by affecting sexual satisfaction.
