Introduction: Physical-motor injury is a type of injury that limits one or more of the basic activities of a person's life and prevents the physical and mental development of an individual. Therefore, men with this type of disability will face certain challenges and problems during their lifetime. One of the most important challenges is marriage and the choice of the spouse to support the emotional, psychological and physical aspects of the man. The aim of the present study is to explain the lived experiences and challenges of men with marital-related physical-motor injuries.
Methods: This research was carried out in a qualitative way, through the phenomenology of lived experiences, via a purposive sampling technique and in-depth interviews with 16 males with physical-motor injuries. The interviews were recorded, then recorded in transcripts and analyzed by Colaizzi's method.
Results: The findings of the lived experiences and challenges of men with physical-motor injuries were summarized in 6 main themes (occupational concerns, fear of disability in sexual relations, fear of rejection, therapeutic problems, religious beliefs, self-affirmation in life), and 20 sub-themes coded as subcategories of the main themes.
Conclusion: These findings can provide the necessary data for recognizing the main problems, concerns and challenges of men with physical-motor injuries in their marriage, and provide a platform for many professionals and authorities to provide services and supports for social rehabilitation of the physical-motor disabled.
