Results: In this study, three categories of factors including internal factors (self-awareness, spirituality, and fear), external factors (context, culture, foresight, and family), and relational factors (spiritual intimacy and relational intimacy) were identified as the effective preventing factors for extramarital relationships.
Conclusion: It seems necessary to determine the factors threatening the comfort and stability of the family as the cornerstone of society.
