Extramarital relations are one of the most traumatic problems that cause the disintegration of married life, and understanding the factors preventing extramarital relations is of great value in maintaining the stability and quality of life in families. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate the mediating role of marital frustration in the relationship between sensation seeking and extramarital relationships. The present research was a descriptive-correlation type of structural equations. The statistical population of the research included all married men in Tehran in 2021-2022, of which 300 qualified people were selected as the research sample using available sampling method. And they responded electronically to Arnett sensation seeking questionnaire (1994), Niehuis & Bartell (2006) marital frustration, and Whatley's (2008) attitude towards extramarital relationships. The research model and relationships between variables were analyzed using Pearson's correlation test using SPSS version 22 software and Amos software. The results showed that sensation seeking (P < 0.01, β = 0.505) has a direct and positive effect on marital frustration, and sensation seeking directly (P < 0.01, β = 0.453) and indirectly and through the mediation of marital frustration (P<0.05, β=0.172) has an effect on extramarital relationships. Marital frustration has a direct positive effect on extramarital relationships (P<0.01, β=0.342). According to the research results, sensation seeking and marital frustration can affect the attitude towards extramarital relationships.
