Dating and marriage customs in iran


Im just looking for a good partner and love for my all life. As if dating weren't hard enough, imagine if you could get jailed or whipped for having a boyfriend.Even in modern families, parental approval of the prospective spouse is an important factor. Marital undertakings by the man include a bride-price sheer bahaa (literally milk price, or an agreed upon money or gift given to the bride's family), and mahri-eh (an agreed-upon sum of money, gold coins or property that women are entitled to receive at any time after marriage; more often, it is a source of financial security for married women in case of divorce or widowhood).Also, the groom's family pays the expenses for the marriage reception and ceremony.Having a relationship with someone is important in all cultures, however the process of dating is different according to countries.

Today as a result of migration and conquest, people of Indo-European, Turkic, Arab, and Caucasian origin have some claim to Iranian cultural identity.

The term "Persian" is used as an adjective— especially pertaining to the arts—and to designate the principal language spoken in Iran.

The term is often used to designate the larger cultural sphere of Iranian civilization.

This includes populations living in Iraq, the Persian Gulf region, the Caucasus region, Central Asia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and northern India.

The formal name of the Iranian state is Jomhuri-ye Islami-ye Iran , the Islamic Republic of Iran. The terms "Iran" as the designation for the civilization, and "Iranian" as the name for the inhabitants occupying the large plateau located between the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf have been in continual use for more than twenty-five hundred years.

Based on differences in cultures, histories, religions, societies and so on, the ways people start dating, fall in love, and marry differ in the countries all over the world.
