Study population consisted of normal couples and couples who were betrayed in the cities of Tehran, Karaj and Tabriz that were referred to counseling clinics. Study sample consisted of 100 clients; 50 normal couples and 50 couples who were involved in marital infidelity. Sampling was targeted. To collect data, Grey-Wilson's and wife infidelity questionnaires were used.

Results: Inhibition of behavior in normal couples was higher than couples involved in marital infidelity which was significant at P <0.01. The behavioral activator system in couples involved in marital infidelity was higher than normal couples and this difference was significant at P <0.01 level.
