A sample of 175 participants was selected by convenience sampling and completed the Marital Burnout questionnaire, Feeling of Longlines questionnaire, and Emotional Divorce questionnaire. Data were analyzed by Pearson’s correlation and multiple regression using SPSS v. 22. 
Results: The results indicated that there was a significant and positive relationship between loneliness and its subscales (lack of intimacy and lack of social network) (r= 0.62) and also a positive and significant relationship was found between emotional divorce and its subscales (feeling of separation from each other, feeling of loneliness the need for a companion, boredom, and restlessness) and marital burnout (r= 0.65).
