The purpose of this research is to compare the demographic, cultural and religious variables between those couples who have applied for divorce and the rest of the population in the city of Tehran. Statistical population includes all couples who had referred to family court and filed a divorce petition, and ordinary couples. The sample was 156 applicants and 164 ordinary couples; among which 132 couples from each group were included in the study. Two kinds of questionnaires, one for demographic data and the other for religious beliefs were used. After the questionnaires were completed, the data were analyzed through SPSS software with Q-square and Cochran tests. The results indicated that high cultural and religious differences, age of marriage before 25 years for men and before 20 for women, less than 6 months pre-marriage acquaintance, and high education differences between couples, were significantly associated with more probability of applying for divorce.
