%X Aim: Purpose of the study was construction, questionnaire reliability and validation for measurement of patterns and premarital injuries. Method: The research method was the testing. The statistical population was all of the engaged couples from 26 Iran provinces in 2018.

After deleting38 unclear questionnaires, 521 people were analyzed by using the contentvalidity index and exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. Results:Exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis indicated that 79 items wereclassified into 5 factors; the first factor was the inefficient relationshippatterns with the explained variance value of 10.50; the second factor was theinefficient relationship management patterns with the explained variancevalue of 6.84; the third factor was the value system of the couples with theexplained variance value of 6.49; the fourth factor was the schematicmentality with the explained variance value of 6.43, and the fifth factor wasthe destructive effects of the main family with the explained variance valueof 5.19, which represented 35.47% of the total variance of the questionnaire.Except χ2 index that was equal to 1200.65, the fitting indicators of theconfirmatory factor analysis were also significant at the level of 0.001. TheCronbach's alpha coefficients were respectively as follows: 0.92 for theinefficient relationship patterns, 0.90 for the inefficient relationshipmanagement patterns, 0.91 for the value system of the couples, 0.89 for theschematics mentality, and 0.87 for the destructive effects of the main family,and these values for retest process with a 45-day-interval respectively were;0.86, 0.87, 0.91, 0.85 and 0.90. Conclusion: The designed questionnaire isvalid and reliable.
