This study aimed at investigating direct and indirect effects of marital standards on couple's marital satisfaction, considering dyadic coping as a mediator. Participants in the study were 150 couples (150 males, 150 females) who were living in Ahvaz, Iran. They were selected by using multi-phasic random sampling method. Participants completed Inventory of Specific Relationship Standards (ISRS), Evaluation and Nurturing Relationship Issues, Communication and Happiness (ENRICH) and Dyadic coping Inventory (DCI). The data were analyzed through Structural Equation Modeling (SEM); and also the indirect effects were tested by using bootstrapping method of AMOS/16 software. Results showed that, statistically, the data showed a good fit for the proposed model. Results of structural equation modeling indicated that marital standards have directly a positive effect, only for husbands, on their marital satisfaction. The results, moreover, indicated that for husbands, as well as for wives, marital standards had indirect effect on marital satisfaction through mediating of dyadic coping self and partner.
