This study attempts to consider the relationship between couple burnout, sexual assertiveness, and sexual dysfunctional beliefs in women with diabetic husbands and comparing them with women with non-diabetic husbands. This study includes a sample population of 200 individuals; 100 women with diabetic husbands and 100 women with non-diabetic husbands. These participants were selected through available sampling method. Both of the groups filled the questioners including personality trait, demographic (self-made), couple burnout (CBM), sexual assertiveness (HISA) and sexual dysfunctional beliefs (SDBQ). Results of multi- variable analysis of variance of the main question of research show that there is a meaningful difference between couple burnout, sexual assertiveness, and sexual dysfunctional beliefs in women with diabetic husbands and women with non-diabetic husbands. Women with non-diabetic husbands had higher sexual assertiveness and lower couple burnout and sexual dysfunctional beliefs than women with diabetic husbands. It seems that one of the most important factors influencing and increaseing couple burnout, increasing wrong sexual beliefs regarding sexual function, and decreasing sexual assertiveness in women is sexual dysfunction of the husband. In fact, women whose husbands suffer from chronic diseases such as diabetes (resulting in sexual dysfunction in patients) have lower sexual assertiveness and higher couple burnout and sexual dysfunctional beliefs comparing to other women.
