There are no accurate statistics on marital infidelity. However, undoubtedly in all societies, marriage is founded on a contract in which the partners commit to stay faithful to each other. Marital infidelity occurs when one of the partners, who had already committed to monogamy, secretly violates the commitment. Focusing on the important role of family members, research shows that family education in combination with CBT techniques has desired effects on treatment of sexual disorders, especially marital infidelity and sexual variety seeking. The current study intended to investigate the efficacy of family therapy combined with CBT techniques on treatment of sexual variety seeking. The present research utilized a case study design, in which several variables are studied among a small number of subjects. In the current study, three subjects aged 28, 28, and 48 years, and diagnosed with having the desire for sexual variety were studied and treated. Findings indicated the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral family therapy on termination of extramarital affairs, and return to marital interactions. Follow-up visits confirmed that the clients have still stayed committed to their marital life, and no infidelity and extramarital affairs were reported. Consistency of the results of the current research with those of the prior studies was also discussed in detail.
