Background: Marital commitment and marital burnout are general evaluations of the value system in spouses’ marital or romantic relationship, which relate to different factors. The present study was conducted with the aim to investigate the relationship between value system, and marital commitment and marital burnout.

Materials and Methods: This was a descriptive correlational study. The study population included all married nurses working in the hospitals of Tehran, Iran. The sample included 340 nurses selected using multistage cluster sampling method. In this study, marital commitment was evaluated using Adams and Jones Marital Commitment Survey, burnout and its dimensions using Pines Couple Burnout Measure, and value system using Schwartz Value System Questionnaire. For data analysis, the Pearson correlation coefficient and multivariate regression were used.

Results: According to the results, the variables of value system had a significant relationship with marital commitment (r = 0.7, P < 0.05) and they completely explained 0.48% of the variance of marital commitment. The predicted model was significant (f = 32.73, P < 0.05). The results showed that the variables of value system and marital burnout had a significant relationship (r = 0.46, P < 0.05). Moreover, value system completely explained 0.18% of the variance of marital burnout; hence, the predicted model was significant (f = 8.88, P < 0.05). 

Conclusions: It can be concluded that the value system can raise commitment and reduce marital burnout, and its components will eventually cause stability in the family.
