Couple's' marital satisfaction influenced by cognition, plays a major role in the psychosocial health of the couples. The present study was conducted in order to predict marital conflicts between men and women based on controlling behavior and interpretation of problems. The present research is a descriptive-correlational study. The statistical population included all married university students in Roodehen in 2015. Based on multi-stage random sampling method, 342 of them (220 women and 122 men) were selected as the sample. The participants were asked to fill out the marital conflict questionnaire of Sanaei Zaker and Barati (2008), the Couples’ controlling behavior scale of Graham-Cowan and Archer (2005), and Difficulties Interpretation Scale of Heintrington, Cox, and Cox (1998). The obtained data were statistically analyzed using the multivariate hierarchal regression test. The findings showed that both interpersonal problems (β=0.083, p<0.05) and intrapersonal problems (β=0.081, p<0.05) can predict marital conflicts. In addition, the regression coefficients indicated that, among the dimensions of controlling behaviors, economic control (β=0.301, p<0.01), control through scare (β=0.227, p<0.01), and control through isolation (β=0.289, p<0.01) were the predicted marital conflicts. The regression coefficients of other components of controlling (emotional and threatening control) were not statistically significant. Based on the study results, it is recommended that one should to pay more attention to the role of teaching cognitive and behavioral skills to couples in order to improve marital relations and strengthen the family foundation.
