And 16 people were grouped in the control group. The three groups that were formed in this way were similar and the dependent variables were measured for both experimental groups at the same time. Also, the follow-up phase was performed three months after the post-test on all three groups. The research tools included Spanier's Marital Adjustment Scale (1976).
