Results: Results showed that the fit indices for proposed model are in the acceptable range; however, by imposing some modifications, the model fitness to the data improved. Also, the results showed that antecedent variables had significant path coefficients on the tree types of love and companionate and compassionate love had significant effects on the outcome variables.
Conclusion: Generally, the findings of present study shows the formation of love types and their essential role in determining the quality of relationship and marital satisfaction in the context of an Iranian sample.
