Aim: The aim of this study was to determine sexual intimacy and trust as moderators of the relationship between secure attachment style and marital commitment. Method: The method of research was correlational and the study population consisted of married female students (N= 1500) of Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz. Of these, 200 female residents of dormitories were selected non randomly based on their availability and completed Farman and Henre’s, 1999 Styles of Conduct Scale, Adams and Jones’ (1997) Marital Commitment Scale, Schaefer and Olson’s (1981) Intimacy Scale, Rampel, Holmes and Zana’s, 1986 Interpersonal Trust Scale. Results: There was a positive relationship between secure attachment style and marital commitment (r= 0.40, P= 0.001). Also sexual intimacy (β= 0.027, P= 0.003), and trust (β= -0.270, P= 0.03) could moderate the relationship between secure attachment style and marital commitment. Conclusion: As interpersonal trust and sexual intimacy could moderate the relationship between secure attachment and marital commitment, therefore it is necessary to make a normal family pay attention to sexual intimacy and interpersonal trust as well as secure attachment.
