Arranged Marriages in Iran are More Successful
New research conducted in by Tehran University in Iran indicated that nearly 90% of the Iranian "love marriages" ended in divorce. The study showed that the factors that lead to marital breakdowns among young people included marrying before they realized the magnitude of their cultural, financial, and/or religious differences, and their desire to live only "for better, for richer, and in health". According to the same study, only 15% of the marriages that were arranged by the couples parents ended in the dissolution of marriage, and only 2% of those who attended couples counseling prior to their marriage terminated their unions. There was an 11% rise in Iran's divorce rate in 2008, and men between 25 and 29 years of age and women from 20 to 24 account for the highest rate of divorce.
