The research is qualitative and based on the method of grounded theory. Respondents were ‎selected using purposive sampling method with the criterion of theoretical saturation among ‎violent married women who referred to positive life centers of the Behzisti Organization in Ilam. ‎The Acceptance criteria were used for accreditation and reliability was achieved through ‎auditing method. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with 30 of the battered ‎married women and coding were performed using Nvivo12 software. Findings indicate the role ‎of family factors such as stressful interaction, staus imbalance; Social factors such as carnival-‎like encounters with marriage; Cultural factors such as patriarchal perceptions. Women's ‎reactions have been largely passive and the consequences have been the normalization of the ‎role of passive victim for women. As a result of the categories, the core category of "domestic ‎violence against women is the product of the combined result of women's experienced ‎helplessness and patriarchal perceptions", Which is the result of family management in the ‎context of maintaining the functions of the patriarchal tradition along with the structural transfer ‎of violence in a cultural mechanism based on socialization.‎
