Background and Objectives: Lack of general health and marital intimacy has a major role in causing couple burnout. Considering the importance of assessing and identifying constituents of burnout, this study aimed to determine the predictive role of general health and marital intimacy in the couple burnout among nurses.

Materials and Methods: This is a correlational research in which 163 nurses were selected through convenience sampling method and then assessed by General Health questionnaire (GHQ), Couple Burnout Measurement (CBM), Marital Intimacy questionnaire (MIQ) and Demographic Characteristic Questionnaire .Data was analyzed using Pearson correlation and stepwise multiple regression analysis.

Results: The results of Pearson’s correlation coefficient showed that there was a significant and negative relation between burnout and general health, marital intimacy, income and marriage duration. In addition, the results of stepwise regression indicated that four factors could predict 48 percent of couple burnout.

Conclusion: According to the results, general health, marital intimacy, income and marriage duration play a considerable role in the couple burnout among nurses.  Therefore, with regard to these factors, it is necessary to pay more attention to couple burnout.
