Depression questionnaire (Beck, 1996) was used in the present study. The data were analyzed through ANCOVA test. The results showed that cognitive-behavioral is effective on the women’s depression after the husband’s betrayal (p≤0.05) since this therapy was able to lead to decreasing the women’s depression after their husband’s betrayal.
