This research was designed to construct and normalize the Love Story Scale (LSS), and to study its relation to marital satisfaction. The statistical sample which comprised of 403 couples (primary and preparatory school students’ parents) of the City of Tabriz, Iran, was chosen through random multistage clustering. This research started with a 200 item questionnaire and was preformed in two stages. In the pilot stage with a sample of 38 couples, content validity and reliability coefficients
(test-r etest and internal consistency) were assessed. Then two 100 item questionnaires were finalized for men and
women. In the final stage, the Hadson Marital Satisfaction Scale (2000) and the LSS were completed by 403 couples.
The reliability of LSS was assessed through Alpha Cronbach internal consistency coefficients, its validity was assessed through criterion and construct validity through exploratory factor analysis and group differences. Results indicated that: the LSS has acceptable psychometric properties. There is a consistency among couples love stories, lower similarity in couples love story profiles, in creases their marital unsatisfaction. There is a significant positive relationship among more prosacially and equal
roles love stories and marital satisfaction, and this case is negative about less prosacially and more manipulative and non equal roles love stories. There is significant difference among men and women in 24 love stories and roles. There is a significant difference among means of love stories of either men or women. Generally, the results were consistent with previous research. Considering foundations and limitations, LSS is a reliable Scale for use in counseling centers and in researches.
