Abstract:   (220 Views)
This study aimed to determine the role of moderating sexual orientation in women and the relationship between gender role and marital instability. The statistical population of this correlational study included women living in Tehran in 2021. The participants were 150 people were selected by accessible sampling method from different parts of Tehran, Iran. Marriage instability, gender roles, and sexual orientation questionnaires were used to collect data. The results indicated that sexual orientation, except for participatory orientation in the role of femininity in women, has a moderating role in relation to gender roles and marital instability. In all measured cases of participatory orientation in sexual relationships, the increase in participatory orientation reduces marriage instability in women. In relation to the exchange orientation, the high rate of this orientation increases marriage instability in women. Also, in the case of expectation in sexual relationship, except when masculinity is high in women, its increase leads to an increase in marital instability in women. According to the findings, high participatory, exchange orientation, and expectations in sexual relationship increase gender roles (masculinity or femininity) and reduce marital instability. Also, when the orientation of expectation and exchange in sex is low, the increase in gender roles (masculinity or femininity) does not change the degree of instability of marriage. In general, the findings of this study can be used to monitor and increase the stability of marriage in Iranian society.
