Marriage is one of the most important issues that happens for most of the people in the world and probably is the most important one!
Such families are really difficult to interact with as they are in a transient state and even do not know how they should treat.These families allow their children to have relationships before they want to get married.The ways boys/girls in open-minded families start dating and meeting each other is more or less similar to here, US.Further, concealing these relationships is not the only problem in these families.Another problem rises when the families decide to force their children to marry in a traditional way while these boys and girls have their own relationships and want to get marry in a different way with different person. In the ‘Patakhti’ ceremony usually the couple just invites the close people like close friends, brothers, sisters, their families, etc.Although as a person who has grown up in an open-minded family, most of the Iranians I have seen and interacted with were belonged to the second category, the number of people who belonged to the first category is significant enough to be taken into account.It should be mentioned that most of the Iranians do fit in one these categories, however, there are many other families who were traditional but are moving toward being considered as a modern families.The rest of the ceremony is pretty similar to the ‘Patakhti’ with a big difference that the ceremony is held in a big place.The way that the couple celebrate their marriage is also highly dependent on their families.Generally, we have two extreme categories for Iranian families.The fist category are ‘religions’ families who believed that their sons or daughters should not have any relationships before marriage.
