Whereas, the family is the most important institution of society and the source of a healthy society, any comedown and deterioration into this institution and its functions are important and worthy of research. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of marital burnout, marital instability and cognitive failure in predicting couples' desire for divorce. The study was descriptive-correlational and the statistical population consisted of 120 women and 120 men in 2019. To collect data used from the Painter's Marital burnout Scale (CBM) questionnaires (1996), Marriage Instability (MLL) John Ann. Edwards, David R. Johnson, and Allen (1987), Bradbent, Cooper, FitzGerald, and Parks (1982) Cognitive Failure Questionnaire and Roosevelt, Johnson, and Moreau (1986) Millennial Divorce Questionnaire. The results showed that a positive and significant relationship between divorce and marital burnout (r = 0.86> P <0.01), and between divorce and marital instability (r = 0.79, P <0.01), But there was no relationship between divorce and cognitive failure (r = 0.006 P <0.01). The results of regression coefficient also show that marital burnout (p <0.01 t = 26.67) and marital instability (p <0.01 t = 19.89) can predict divorce, but Cognitive failure (p <0.01 t = 0.11) is not able to predict divorce. Therefore, according to the findings of the study, decreasing burnout and increasing marital stability can be used to enrich spouses' interpersonal relationships and reduce their desire for divorce.
