Introduction: Intimacy and the satisfaction with life are solid foundations of a family. This study aims at analyzing communication skills training through religion-based cognitive-behavioral approach on increasing intimacy and the satisfaction with life. Methods: This study was a quasi-experimental trial with pretest, posttest, follow-ups and control group. Our sample in this study consisted of 30 couples whose SD, according to the intimacy and satisfaction with life questionnaires, was less than mean value. Likewise, these couples were completely homogeneous in terms of age, socioeconomic status, duration of marriage and other variable followed by the author. The experimental group received ten training sessions of religion-based communication skills however, control group did not any receive any intervention. Broucke and Vertommen’s Marital Intimacy Questionnaire (MIQ) and Diener’s satisfaction with Life Scale were used in this study. Data were analyzed by SPSS 16. Results: The results indicated that there is a significant difference between experimental and control groups in terms of intimacy and the satisfaction with life (P<0.001). It means that the posttest scores of intimacy and satisfaction among couples’ tests have been increased significantly in contrast to their scores in pretest and control group. Such results have been continued during two follow-up periods (P<0.001). Conclusion: Communication skills training through religion-based cognitive behavioral approach increases intimacy and the satisfaction with life among couples.
