Shahrzad News -- “The general culture of our society does not encourage marriage. Many of our young people want to find well-paid jobs before they start married life.
Shahrzadnews:Many young Iranians with low or average incomes are avoiding marriage for fear of not being able to support a family, and even the highly-educated elite are choosing to postpone it, according to a recent survey.
In an interview with the Fars News Agency, Sayed Jafar Haghgou – a sociologist at the Women and Family Group of the Baqerul Ulom Research Centre – said that military service and a lack of employment and housing are the main reasons for the trend.
“The general culture of our society does not encourage marriage. Many of our young people want to find well-paid jobs before they start married life. Even those who have an adequate, above-average income are not interested in tying the knot. We should try to change attitudes and remind young people that marriage is a virtue, while wealth and glamour are immoral.”
