Questions related to Marriage
In India, 80% marriages are arranged marriages and since there is no scientific method available to check the overall compatibility (especially from psychological perspective) people use unscientific methods like astrology. Is there any psychological assessment to test compatibility of Indian bride and grooms?
Dower goes from the groom to the bride. It is mandatory for Muslim marriages. In Murdock's Ethnographic Atlas, however, nearly all Muslim societies are characterized by bridewealth, which is different, as it goes from groom's kin to bride's kin thereby excluding the bride.
I am looking for articles related to love marriage among girls, especially in Bangladesh and South Asian perspectives. Any suggestions, please.
What is the impact of the lockdown on the emotional stability of involuntarily childless women in abusive marriages.?
In the statistical analysis of the structural equation model (SEM), if we have an independent variable and a dependent variable and two variables as mediators, if we want to calculate some demographic characteristics such as gender and employment status and marriage as a moderator, Amos and, Lisrel software are better or R software?
The trend of getting married in the early 20s has been changed recently. Compared to 50 years ago, the changes in economic, social, literacy and cultural aspects in life are partially responsible behind such decisions. Getting married in late may mean a reduction of the rate of population growth. This trend could be variable in various parts of the globe since there are other aspects, like more children means more help in the older age. When the cost of bringing up of a child goes out side the equation, the dwindling rate of population growth may not be noticed. Please share your thoughts!
At what point does a customary marriage come into existence? Is it after the parties agree to be married? Is it when dowry or bride price is offered and accepted? Is it when a celebration is concluded? Is it when a certificate is issued? If it occurs at the point when a certificate is issued, is the issuing of the certificate not mere recognition of that which has already taken place? I am thinking of a birth certificate. It does not constitute the birth, as it only records its existence. That is why one can still obtain a late registration of birth, subject to proof that such birth occurred and between the mother and child and at the given date / time and place.
and by the same token, it is interesting to grasp at what point a divorce of these customary marriages occurs. The same sets of questions about marriage above apply also to the divorce. Any views colleagues? We need to advance those cultures and their institutions to a point where they can be best understood and dealt with in the modern and post-modern settings. and research questions should always at least inform the statutory and social debates to inform harmonisation as cultures intermarry more now than at any other point in our human histoy.
Hi, I am a final year student at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid ( Spain), doing my final thesis about the working-life conditions in the Nordic Countries.
Especially, I am researching about the different types of statutory entitlement to leave. However, I haven´t found in any nordic country legislation about days off work to enjoy the honeymoon after marriage.
I was wondering if you could know or even pointing me out in the direction of someone with knowledge in those Nordic labour law questions. It would be extremely appreciated.
My dissertation is about female early marriage and how it affects female labor participation. I'm trying to find a proper theory that underlines the topic. Most of the papers I found, relate the theory of change to the topic, but I need a different perspective.
I want to do work in this topic if anyone have any articles/books related to this topic cross-caste and caste boundaries marriage in rural areas In Pakistan.
Is there a probability to see this happens without any sensitivity to all three?
I hope to find papers and studies.
I am looking to conduct a study investigating whether there was a relationship between people's perception of relationship/marital therapy and their relationship status, and was just wondering if anybody had seen any studies that look into anything similar - or even investigated just people's perceptions of relationship/counselling therapy?
Recent study shows that more than 50% women face abuse on social media - from unwanted friend request to indecent messages to peculiar marriage proposals, women face harassment on social media every other day- highest being on Face Book. Social media have got prominence in every individual's life, more so after the the out break of pandemic Covid-19 and the lock down. And women are no exception to it. Then, How to check this evil practice?
Learned members are invited to opine and share views.
If focusing on micro-firms, I can relate the first I visited and researched in Bangladesh 1969-71 [back when the area was called East Pakistan. I was with the Ford Foundation and we funded Dr. Aktar Hamid Khan and The Comilla Project. A training/research center for Bengali farmers, including women.
The Project included several studies.
One was to collect milk from the few cows held by most households. The milk was collected and processed into cheese in an elaborate "peasant" system - organized by the extension workers of the Comilla Project.
As households earned cash - like pennies and dimes - they wanted "to bank." The Project set up training for all, including a few "bankers."
Then the money sat and people's savings were small. But some villagers wanted to borrow and asked their villagers. The Project organized credit lending schemes and then addressed repayment plans. The villagers wanted assurances and decided that village organizations would do the lending and the organizations would monitor and recover money they loaned. The villagers were almost always related as Muslims handle marriages and care for each other. Etc. This system was long before the Grameen System became the object of attention and the Nobel Peace Prize. Aktar Hamid Khan should have been the first Bengali Nobel Peace Prize Awardee. But he was not Bengali. He was by birth an "Anglo Paki."
That history - I observed long ago but my impressions last because the people of Bangladesh were honest, hardworking and sadly - with limited means or active economies.

Sacrament or Samskar means purification, Hindu have sixteen samskaras from Pre-birth to death. Marriage sacrament or Vivaha samskar is one of the sixteen samskaras.
I observed that most people enjoy courtship because love is active during this period. But in marriage, there seems to be conflicts because here love is passive. I discovered that most marriages collapse because men are pretenders in courtship period. Most of them are no more who they used to be during courtship- a romantic period. They grow traditional and more authoritative whereas women want to be romantic forever. Men should not tolerate in courtship what they cannot tolerate in marriage- a classical period. My understanding of Romantic Period and Classical Period is that of Courtship Period and Marital Period.
"A valid marriage between the baptised is called ratum tantum if it has not been consummated; it is called ratum et consummatum if the spouses have performed between themselves in a human fashion a conjugal act which is suitable in itself for the procreation of offspring, to which marriage is ordered by its nature and by which the spouses become one flesh." ( Can. 1061 §1.)
What if consummatio is understood from the psychological point of view? What if a marriage is consumed physically but never emotionally? Could annulment be granted on the ground of this canon? Should it or should it not?
What are your thoughts?
I am currently working on my final year thesis, and need to use the scale for my research, which is on Locus of control and marital Stability. I feel like Miller Marital LOC scale would be a better fit for this research than, Levenson LOC scale which i am currently going ahead with, as i can't find the authority figure to approach for permission. Kindly please let me know if you know the university the authors were affiliated with, or anyone else that i could get in touch with for permission.
Thanking you in advance.
In western country ,marriage is not necessary to share love with two partners,But in arab and many religions need marriage to be necessary to validate the relation and love and sex sharing,so the marriage and love still be discussed,
The second argument you often hear is that marriage is a declaration of love. It's about "showing" we're settled, our partners are "off the market", and we're in a position to build a family. Most of this, however, is a display for others. Plenty of monogamous couples maintain stable, healthy relationships without rings or certificates to "prove" loyalty.
Indeed, who are we trying to prove our love to? Our proof should be our treatment of each other: anything else is addition, not basis. There is more to be worried about if we need to "secure" someone, like a raging animal, with a ring or certificate or other public stamp.
Furthermore, as high divorce rates show, being tied to one person doesn't work out for many, especially for the rest of our lives. Compromises can be made. Couples now swing, maintain open marriages, and so on. But this should only make us question why we're still devoted to the "one true love" ideal in the first place.
I know that the quality of the attachments is poor...
I found it during the autopsy of a snail - Anentome helena (von dem Busch, 1847) from Thailand.
I heard that this snail species produce "nuptial gifts"... Can we see sperm in the photo? Or maybe there are some protozoa?
Thank you for all your help!
The one thing that specifically caught my attention is the ill tradition of “Child Grooms” which has practically been ignored as it has failed miserably to find its rightful place in mainstream dissent as the most obvious reason being that “Child Marriages” have always been thought to be oppressive for “Child Brides” but it’s no less than a gospel truth that Child Marriages tend to be equally tragic for “Child Grooms” too. We cannot deny an accomplished fact that innocence of childhood cannot be classified into conventional binary divisions. The mental trauma suffered by a Child Groom is no less than that of a Child Bride, but it often gets overlooked or ignored under the established typical gender norms. It is indeed unfortunate to state that it is just not a rural malady, but there is no dearth of instances wherein it has been practiced in urban setups too. Marriages have always been the most respected, trusted, and accepted societal institution, but the questions that this practice and phenomena of Child Grooms put across a need of serious thinking and redefining it to better suit the modern societal outlook. It is indeed an overwhelming realization that my work attempts to research and represent it on such a scale and allows me with the liberty to widen its reach. Call it the paragon of paradoxes or facts laced with incredible ironies that we have reached the moon and back, but still, our children are doomed in pre-mature marriages.
I welcome you all to further elaborate your take on this issue. You can also share a few research articles with me on this topic as it will help me in strengthening my knowledge on this issue. This is my Ph.D. research topic.
I'm doing a thesis about the hindu marriage , the dowry and the widow in the hindu society . I've already read some books about this topic, but I think that something is missing. Someone can provide me with books that can give me all the information I need on the subject?
Thank you for your attention.

Hi, I'm working on my dissertation in behavioral finance, I am open for the discussion regarding the wives financial strategic in risk of divorce possibility?
is there any other factors that might affecting the decision making process?
In the past millenia, the Chinese have refrained from marrying within their patrilineage (marrying their father’s brother’s daughter is considered incestuous and forbidden).
By contrast, Middle-Easterners (Arabs, Persians and Pakistanis) preferentially marry within their patrilineage (marrying their father’s brother’s daughter is considered a marriage ‘made in heaven’ and certainly not incestuous).
Why such a difference, while the Chinese and the Middle Easterners otherwise have similar family systems (joint families with patrilineal descent and bridewealth) ?
I have seen other sources about attitudes for having sex before marriage. but as you know it is very important, because we live in an Islamic country. you know that you mast keep your completed questionnaire about 3 years. thanks for your kindly attention
Some classical methods used in the field of linear algebra,such as linear regression via linear least squares and singular-value decomposition, are linear algebra methods, and other methods, such as principal component analysis, were born from the marriage of linear algebra and statistics. To read and understand machine learning, you must be able to read and understand linear algebra. This book helps machine learning practitioners, get on top of linear algebra, fast.
Some married couples used their spouses as their next of kin while some used the first child, others used the first male child. Some people also preferred to use their siblings for next of kin. Who do you think should be the next of kin as a married person or unmarried person ? What are the criteria of choosing the next of kin? I will appreciate candid answers to this question.
When should a sincere man give up on a girl if he required nothing from her but acceptance of a life long relationship, marriage and eternal love?
After meeting someone who you take serious, how long should you try to convince that person to trust you for a serious relationship?.
The question is linked to my current study of the role of Affair Partner (AP) in extramarital relationship among Muslim marriage. Affair Partner may or may not be Muslim.
A Muslim man is allowed a maximum of 4 wives at any one time. This opportunity increases the confidence of a mate poacher in pursuing relationship with a married Muslim partner.
Mate poaching involves action and intent . Poaching involves two key elements:
- Pursuit. The pursuit of someone that is already in a relationship (and the poacher knows it).
- Intent. The intention to pry a person away from their partner.
I'm wondering about attachment styles in relationship to inherited wealth. I have not found any literature or studies regarding but if any one knows of existing or developing research please let me know!
Much thanks, Michele
I am currently working with Survey data from Germany for the period 1984-2015 analyzing the relationship between marriage and life satisfaction. Currently I am trying to drop individuals who are married but have missing data for their marital status for 2 or more years in-between reported years. I have also filled out the missing years for each individual (tsfill full) in order to have the full set of 1984-2015.
I tried generating variable showing people who are married and I tried generating variable showing missing data between the years ( pid= personal identification number or each respondent; syear= survey year; marstatus= marital status, equal to 1 when the person is married):
tab marstatus, generate (dum) * generating dummy variable for each marital status rename dum1 NA rename dum2 Married rename dum3 Single rename dum4 Widowed rename dum5 Divorced sort pid syear egen max_gap=max(syear - syear[_n-1]), by(pid)
gen laggedmar = marstatus if (syear - syear[_n-1])
Seem though that none of those approaches work and I am generating either senseless variables, or missing observation. I also did try: gen byte Married_missing = missing(Married) / generating dummy 0 when the person is married and 1 otherwise/ by syear Married_missing (Married), sort: gen byte Changed = (Married != Married[_n+2]) if Married_missing == 1
Do you have advice for me on how to approach this issue ? Do I need to use loop or there is easier way/ command that I can apply?
I am conducting a study that requires a measure of the variable, Perception of parents' romantic relationship.
In such workaholic academic life we find ourselves in, sometimes other important farcets of life are often neglected. These include marriage, family and hobbies. How do we ensure a balance life in this demanding academic life?
I am looking for a qualitative instrument (e.g. scale) related to minority stress, felt stigma, internalized stigma but specific to LGBTQ parents.
Last week expert Austin Ruse President/C-Fam, Editor & Publisher/Friday Fax (https://c-fam.org/) raised the alert that the UN is negotiating a new hard-law treaty that will make Church teachings crimes against humanity.
How could this possibly be?
Here’s how he explained it.
" UN Member States are now negotiating a new hard-law treaty on “crimes against humanity.” These are generally regarded as those crimes that offend all of humanity, such as the genocide of the Jews by the Germans during World War II.
The new treaty very well may include the following:
“Sexual orientation and gender identity”
Please knew we oppose all unjust discrimination against those with same-sex attraction. However, we cannot support the idea that opposing “sexual orientation and gender identity” as a new “crime against humanity.” This would criminalize the teachings of the Church.
We faced the notion of “forced pregnancy” when the International Criminal Court was negotiated twenty years ago. In the hands of the left, “forced pregnancy” means that a woman cannot get an abortion.
Working with UN Member States twenty years ago, we got it defined as the repeated rape of a woman for the purposes of changing the demographic profile of a country, literally holding a woman prisoner until she gives birth.
But, the left is back again and they want to insert “forced pregnancy” into the new treaty but without a definition so they can define it later against the unborn child.
This is how the new treaty will criminalize the teachings of the Church. And this is why we oppose this new language, and why we need your help."
I think that it is a problem for all humanity, it is not only a problem for catholics like myself. It seeks to force pro-abort legislation in all countries that have some protection for the unborn. If this UN treaty is approved, besides multiplying the number of aborts, many more women would be dangeroulsy wounded in their feminity because the post-abort syndrom, and beside the problems of an aging population would increase without limit. This is really irresponsably encouraging an inhumane behavior. For what use is the UN today?

I nave been wondering if cultural values are against "human right". Instances is the issue of gayism being forced on most African countries by the wastern world but will not accept Polygamy which seems to have an African root.
Hi dear colleagues,
For example, in my country (Algeria), six cases of divorce were recorded every hour. In fact, divorce rate was 52% in 2003 and then increased up to 63% and 67% in 2010 and 2017, respectively.
My question is: Which one is the most linked to marital unhappiness or increasing in divorce levels: Social networking/media, lack of dialogue or social problems? Are there other factors?
Thank u so much for sharing ur opinions in this topic,
Hi dear colleagues,
What is the main secret for the success of any conjugal relationship?
For me, love, understanding and consensus (compatibility) in thoughts (ideas) is the key secret.
Thanks for sharing ur experiences with us,
I am doing a research on the influence of social media in young married couples. Do you think social comparison in social media especially FB and Instagram will lead to jealously between married couples and result to marriage dissatisfaction?
Marriages are difficult, for returning students, to maintain. Male partner has lost both parents. Throwing mental and emotional stress roadblocks, in way, especially before exams and finals.
What is the % of survival, of marriages, in which both parents, have died. Surviving male child was very close and instant constant contact. EX: Visited every morning and shared breakfast.
Family patriarch was controlling and abusive. Male child, in 50s, exhibiting same behavior patterns, although shares many, more personality traits, of maternal parent figure.
It is a common trend of cultures to marry within own blood relations. Do you think it may be harmful to the children of such couple or their next generation?
Please explain only scientific views and research reports.
Marriage was perhaps developed among the ancient people mainly for confirmation of paternity as heir, security of the ladies, control of fights between male members within a group for ladies etc.
But now at 2018, what is the main requirement of marriage?
Getting offspring/ Companion/ Sex/ Family or the initial reasons are still valid?
The recent controversy over eternal functional subordination of the Son basically stems from the fact that some complementarians (e.g. Ware, Grudem) think that there is a parallel between the Holy Trinity and marriage.
It seems to me that there is no firm biblical, historical, or theological warrant for such a surmise. Or is there? Do you know of some apology of socio-Trinitarian principle?
It has been a common ritual that many men beg for sex with their wives. Through my recent collaborative research on the problems in the marriages in Ghana, I realized from the responses of many husbands that majority of the problems they have with their wives is with respect to sex. Many husbands regrettably admitted that they had to beg their wives, offer a promise of giving material things and/or bribe before their wives give them the opportunity to have sexual relations with them. This made me wonder whether sex should be a sympathetic activity for husbands in marriage. Please, kindly share your views on this topic to sustain marriages in Ghana and the diaspora.
Thanks in advance.
Some of our acquaintances are having apprehensions regarding marrying with near relatives. I am looking for some authentic medical document on this subject to remove the doubts.
Writing a report on all recognition of customary marriages in international, regional (African), and sub-regional (SADC).
I have already explored the PANQIMS, PNRQ, RAM, RAS, etc. If you know of any others, I would love your ideas! Thank you
I am in the process of looking for relevant concepts and theories for my research. My main research goal is to explore the experience of child marriage through the eyes of former child brides. This includes the transitions in their identity, i.e from being a child to being a wife/mother to being a former child bride. So far I am considering making use of a feminist perspective but I would like to look at other options particularly theories/concepts that speak not only to experiences but the issue of identity transitions as well.
The theories/concepts I have come across can't really be applied fully such as the life course theory, biographical disruption and the looking glass self. I'd appreciate suggestions of others I can review.
anything you think is relating with health behavior and marital satisaction please tell me. i need it for my ms thesis. thank you

I am conducting a study on intercultural partnerships/marriages/cohabiting couples, and I am wondering where can I go to find participants? They need to be two individuals from different cultures or of different nationalities (e.g. Chinese-American, Colombian-Peruvian, Russian-Mexican...), preferably living in Florida, but will also consider anywhere in the world if they have access to Skype. I am putting out flyers in different places and an online add, but would appreciate any suggestions.
Can opportunities for income generation influence decisions about marriage and help to delay marriage? My review of the literature suggests that there is not much of an evidence base on this although this seems to be a widely held assumption.
Specifically (if possible) on same-sex marriage, capital punishment, and open marriage.
Historically, many sociological and cultural investigations have explained the late-marriage on the basis of social change, unemployment and financial problems. However, it seems that a few psychological factors may play significant roles in this phenomenon. So, how psychological research can help to explain the late-marriage in different cultures?
How gender may influence late marriage in adults?
What theories can apply to understand late marriage in adults?
How adults may precept and explain the nature of late-marriage?
How positive psychological constructed related to late marriage in adults?
And 1000 examples of marriages which has not been divorced yet? What do you think? Does anyone knows about examples of such kinds of scientific work?
From previous reading I have found studies that suggest people in the western world are threatened by arranged marriages. Why is this?
