Background: Divorce is a social issue, which challenges not only the structure of family
but also of a society. Studies have shown that infertility affects the marital boredom. In
addition, resilience training and emphasizing on increasing piety (religiousness) can
help to decrease this boredom.
Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the resilience training effects on the
compromising of infertile couples’ applicant for divorce.
Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 100 infertile couples who had
requested for divorce and referred to the Center for consolidation of the family
foundation were enrolled. Participants were randomly divided in two categories (n=
50/each): the case group received some consultation classes on social services as
well as resilience training by a consultant in 5 sessions lasting 2 hr. In total, 10 hr of
treatment; while the control group just received the consultation and social services.
Canner and Davidson questionnaires were utilized as pre- and posttest in both groups.
Groups answered the resilience’s criterion of Canner and Davidson.
Results: The resilience training significantly increased the compromises made by
couples in the case group compared to the control (p < 0.01). The results showed that
26% of members of the case group relinquished divorce, while 10% of control group
members did the same; this difference was statistically significant (p < 0.01).
Conclusion: The resilience training leads to increased psychological well-being
elements and compromises in infertile couples.
