The aim of the present study, which was a non-experimental, cross-sectional, correlational study, was to investigate the pattern of correlation among five variables of relationaship satisfaction, commitment level, quality of alternative relations, investment size, and length of relationship, and depressive symptoms in married men and women in the city of Tehran, and to calculate the amount of variance of deprssive symptoms which is accounted for by each of these variables. The questionnaires which were used in the study were (1) the demographic information questionnaire, (2) Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), (3) Couples Satisfaction Index (CSI), and (4) Investment Model Scale (IMS), which were distributed among 264 clerical employees in the Ministry of Education. The results of 252 questionnaires were reliable and could be used in data analysis. The results showed negative and significant correlation between relationship satisfaction and depressive symptoms, and the amount of this correlation coeffeicient was higher among men. The results of regression ananlysis showed that the five predictor variables account for 35/6% of depressive symptoms variance among women, and 94/2% of depressive symptoms variance among men. In women’s regression model, the only variable which had a statistically significant role in accounting depressive symptoms variance was commitment level, while in men’s regression model, all predictor variables had a statistically significant role in accounting depressive symptoms variance.
