Abstract: For a maximal subgroup $ M$ of a finite group $ G$, a $ \Theta $-pair is any pair of subgroups $ (C,D)$ of $ G$ such that (i) $ D \triangleleft G,D \subset C$, (ii) $ \left\langle {M,C} \right\rangle = G,\left\langle {M,D} \right\rangle = M$ and (iii) $ C/D$ has no proper normal subgroup of $ G/D$. A natural partial ordering is defined on the family of $ \Theta $-pairs. We obtain several results on the maximal $ \Theta $-pairs which imply $ G$ to be solvable, supersolvable, and nilpotent.
