A good example of the fact that a man should be a support for a family is Muslim families. Iran is a Muslim country, therefore families are built here on the same basis as in other Muslim countries. A young man who plans to start a family must be financially and morally independent from his parents.
A groom in Iran must give his bride an expensive gift, such as an apartment, a house, or a gift in cash. The bride also has to make an expensive gift, it can be an expensive suit or jewelry made of precious metals or stones. The girl's parents should also make rich gifts to the young as a dowry.
It can be a fully furnished house or an apartment, for wealthy parents it is the apartment itself or a house for the young. However, even if the girl does not belong to a wealthy family, the groom, who is ready to marry the girl, may refuse her dowry.
In the event of a divorce in Iran, all dowry donated from both sides of the young must be returned according to the rules. However, divorce in Iranian families is a rather rare occurrence and many spouses live together a long life very happily.
Islam is a rather complex religion with many customs and rules that most of us may disagree with. To a greater extent, this applies to women.
Today, women in Iran, of course, have enough rights, but traditions and religion still exclude complete freedom for them. The man, on the other hand, has practically unlimited rights.
In Iran, men are allowed to have four wives, and this is now quite common. Another question is whether a man can support all four wives.
In addition, during the first marriage, the wife can set conditions for her spouse that he will no longer marry, and she will remain the only spouse. This condition is documented and cannot be violated by the spouse.
However, even in the absence of such a condition, a man cannot enter into a second marriage without the permission of his first wife. If she refuses, then it will be necessary for him to prove that his first wife cannot fully satisfy him in all respects.
This is rather difficult, because then a man should not deprive each of his wives either in a material sense or in a sexual sense, and he should also take care of all his children born of different wives equally.
Marriages in Iran are temporary and permanent. Temporary marriages can be contracted if the man does not have sufficient financial position. Such a marriage can then be prolonged by mutual agreement of both parties, or it can also be dissolved by mutual agreement.
In addition, temporary marriages in Iran are concluded when a man plans his family life with a foreign or non-Muslim woman; when a man needs to leave the country for a long time, and his spouse refuses to accompany him, then the man has the right to enter into a temporary marriage. There can be many reasons for entering into temporary marriages.
Permanent marriage can only be concluded with a Muslim woman or with a woman who will accept Islam. Otherwise, a man will not be able to marry a non-Muslim woman, whether this marriage is temporary or permanent.
Relationships outside of marriage in Iran are prohibited, punishable by law, and become a discussion for the whole society. A man has no right even to have a mistress. Only the relationship between spouses is recognized. If the wife does not satisfy the husband, then he can enter into a temporary marriage.
Marital relationships are also important for offspring. A married man whose spouse cannot have children can have a second wife. If he has no desire to marry again, then as an option there is a temporary marriage.
In this case, the man does not have any material obligations to his wife, he will only have to provide for his child, who will appear in a temporary marriage. Also, a child who is born in a temporary marriage has all the rights and has the full right to receive an inheritance from his father. The father pays child support for the entire time until he reaches the age of majority.
A man in Iran cannot see the face of his future wife before the wedding, and one of the prerequisites for marriage for a woman should be her virginity.
If she is not a virgin, then she is obliged to warn her future spouse about this, so that the wedding night does not become an unpleasant surprise for him. Concealment of this detail can lead to the husband being entitled to sue, which recognizes that the marriage is not valid.
The decision to marry two young people in Iran is made by their parents, who get together in order to discuss all the details of this event. After both sides come to a positive outcome, the young people exchange gifts and rings.
Wedding ceremonies in Iran take place with the official conclusion of marriage, when a notary is present, who will have to document the marriage. It is also obligatory to conclude a marriage in a mosque, before God. The celebrations themselves can take place in a restaurant, in the home of one of the parties' parents, and most often in the groom's house.
The average age at marriage in Iran is 20 or 21 years old. These are early marriages, so all the expenses are borne by the parents of the young. Most of the money for organizing the wedding comes from the groom's family and there are usually two or three hundred people at weddings.
Like most honeymooners, Iranians also currently go on honeymoon trips in order to strengthen their relationships and be alone with each other. The wedding can be less lavish in order to make the honeymoon trip more colorful and interesting.
