Background and Aim: Thalassemia is the most common hereditary hemoglobinopathy of world. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of thalassemia minor couples among the marriage volunteers who referred to the health–care centers of Javanroud city in 2013-2014. Methods: In this cross-sectional descriptive study 11 minor thalassemia couples were investigated based on the available records, documents and books. The data was collected through available thalassemia cases, documents and contact with the couples. After entering data into the computer, Excel software was used. Results: The results of this study showed that 11 couples equivalent to 2.0% with Thalassemia minor were diagnosed. 50% of them were the final suspect and 50% of them were healthy minor disease carriers. Also based on these findings 36/36% of couples carried out further tests and 54/54% of them didn't carry out this test. Only two cases (9%of healthy disease carriers) of them have college education. Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study none of the couples canceled their marriage which indicates low awareness or lack of adequate training in this field. It is necessary to improve counseling programs and diagnosis before marriage. Also continuous monitoring on laboratory activities before marriage should be done.
