Abstract

To explore the components of marital satisfaction in a group of 35 Iranian mothers of six to twelve years old children with attentiondeficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in comparison with 35 mothers of normal children in Tehran, Iran, during year 2013, all mothers completed the demographic checklist and Golombok Rust inventory of marital satisfaction. Data were analyzed by performing descriptive statistics and independent t-test using the SPSS software version 21. There was no statistically significant difference between scores of marital satisfaction (P = 0.162) yet further data analysis revealed that martial satisfaction of employed mothers (22.27 ±10.71 vs. 28.73±12.3, P = 0.42) and thosemotherswhohad a monthly income of more than 6,000,000 Rials (22.95±12.31 vs. 22.21± 11.67, P = 0.04) was significantly better compared with the comparison group. It may be concluded that employment and reasonable income may contribute to a lower level of stress and improved relationship among mothers with ADHD children. © 2016, Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences.
