Background: Couple burnout has an undesirable effect on marital quality. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to determine couple burn out and its related factors among couples referring to comprehensive health services centers in marginalized rural areas of Birjand during 2016.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive-analytical study, 200 couples (400 persons) referring to comprehensive health services centers in marginalized rural areas of Birjand were randomly selected as research population during 2016. The data were collected using a two-part questionnaire with personal information and the Pines Couple Burnout Measure (CBM). Data analysis was done in SPSS software (version18) through ANOVA and independent t-test. P-value less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
Results: The mean score of total couple burnout was 57.04 ± 17.86 (range: 21-115). The highest percentage of couple burnout was related to grade 2 or couple burnout line (46.5%). There was a significant difference between the scores of couple burnout and gender, age, number of children, duration of marital life and couples' residency in a same place (P<0.05). There was no significant statistical relationship between the mean scores of couple burnout and other related factors (P>0.05).
Conclusions: With regard to the high rate of couple burnout among couples referring to comprehensive health services centers in marginalized rural areas of Birjand, it is necessary to conduct training sessions in terms of couple burnout and counseling for at-risk couples.
