Major reasons for high divorce rate among young couples in Iran revealed

Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 15 /Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/

The research center of Iran's Ministry of Youth has revealed reasons for high divorce rate among young couples in the country, Mehr reported.

According to the Head of the research center, Mohammad Tagi Hasanzadeh, the major reasons are moral corruption, mental disorder, unemployment, and alimony payments.

"Recent study on young couples in Iran suggests that unhealthy relationships and moral degeneration are the leading causes of divorces among the young Iranian couples," Hasanzadeh said.

Hasanzadeh said that in Iranian provinces of Tehran, Khorasan and Fars, the divorce rate has become the highest in the whole country.

According to him, most of the time, women are the ones filling in for the divorce.

Iran's authorities say for the last 6 months of current Iranian year (ends on March 2013), the divorce rate has been increasing, while the marriage rate has dropped.

Mohammad Tagi Hasanzadeh said that according to the 2011 population census, about 31,5 percent of population in Iran was young - a figure that has been 35 percent back in 2006.

"The best marriage was is 25 years for men, and 22 years for women, however now Iran is facing a delay of some 5 years in this regard," Hasanzadeh said.

He said things like individualism and modernity contributed to the marriage age being delayed for several years, adding that currently only 15 percent of young Iranians are into sports, while about 73 percent of young spend their time watching television.

Iran's Statistics Institute Head Alirza Zahedian said in November 2012, that the population of Iran can face negative growth rate till 2041.

He said the young population in Iran now accounts for the majority of the overall population, and they will soon surpass the 30-year range.

He noted that during 1981-1986, which was the growth peak in Iran, the country had 2.2-2.3 million annual birthrate.

"Now, the annual birthrate is some 1.3 million, with some 400,000 people dying annually in the country," Zahedian said.

He noted that by 2041, the number of older people in Iran can reach from 18 to 20 million out of 70 plus million population.

According to Zahehian, if such negative trend continues, the country will be facing a labor supply problem in the future.
