Background and Objectives: Pre-marriage counseling enables couples to be aware of all aspects of sexuality and make them enjoy sexual activity. This study aimed to assess quality of sexual health counseling services in pre-marriage counseling centers in Tabriz. Material and Methods: In this study, 236 individuals referred to the pre-marital counseling centers in Tabriz were randomly selected. Data were gathered using a self-structured instrument including items on demographic characteristics and sexual health. The validity and reliability of the instrument was confirmed. Results: The results showed that 5.1% of the clients did not receive any sexual health services. More than half of the participants (53.4%) received low information and 41.5% received moderate information on the sexual health. There was a significant relationship between age and sexual health (p<0.05). Conclusion: It seems that focusing on the quality of sexual health services could help couples to have a healthy marriage.
