A sample of 1736 married men and women was collected using a cross sectional survey Multi-stage cluster sampling method was used to collect the data and due to the different economic and social classes of people, 50 geographical regions in Tehran were selected. The instrument was questionnaire and data was analysed using explanatory factor analysis and multivariate regression. In explanatory factor analysis, five dimentions for shared activities were exracted and the impact of social and economic characteristics, factors related to the life cycle, gender attitudes, marital variables and work-family conflict on these dimensions were examined. The results showed shared activity with spouse was greater among men, educated people, people with egalitarian gender attitudes, and people with more homogeneity wih spouse. The importance of homogeneity wih spouse and gender attitudes was greatest while the role of factors related to the life cycle was the least. Income, income difference, work-family conflict, and marital duration had a dual role in different dimentions of married lifestyle. This model had the greatest explanatory power in social contact (29.5 percent) and the lowest explanatory power in spending money (10.3 percent). Shared activities with spouse were not the same in different dimentions. Determinants and severity of effects were also different. The results confirms the theories of exchange, cultural capital and new home economic.
