The family is one of the most important institutions of society and shapes the personality of a person that develops emotions and values, evolves, self-esteem and socialization, the power of choice and ultimately rational decision making. The purpose of this study was to predict extramarital relationships based on quality of love, conflict resolution styles, and marital commitment. The study was descriptive-correlational and the statistical population included all married women and men in Rasht in 1398 and the sample consisted of 280 married men and women from 5 regions of Rasht city. They were randomly selected. To collect data from Attitude to Infidelity Questionnaires (meta-marital relationships) Mark Watley (2006), Robert Sternberg's Triangular Love Questionnaire (ROCI-II), Adams and Marital Commitment Questionnaire. Jones (1997) was used. The results showed that there is a negative and significant relationship between love quality and meta-marital relationship (r = -0.31; P <0.01) and between the component of commitment to the spouse of the marital commitment variable with meta-marital relationship (p <0.01). R = 0.34) There was a positive and significant relationship, but no significant relationship was found between variables of conflict resolution styles and couple commitment and meta-cognitive relationships. Also, 10% of the total variance of meta-marital relationships is explained by the components of quality of love, 1% of the total variance is explained by the components of conflict resolution styles, and 11% of the total variance of meta-marital relationships by the components of marital commitment. According to the results of this study and the importance of a significant relationship between the variables of extramarital relationships and the quality of love, it is recommended to offer workshops to reduce and counteract extramarital relationships to prevent social and familial problems.
