A House on Water

A Comprehensive Study on Sigheh Mahramiat and Temporary Marriage in Iran

Picture1 1


The religious and traditional stratum of the Iranian society performs sigheh / sigheh mahramiat. Both the country’s laws and the jurisprudence treat permanent and temporary marriages the same although they are different in nature and so far temporary marriage has not been addressed as an independent subject. The religious and legal ambiguities surrounding sigheh and temporary marriage and inattention to Iran’s social circumstances lead to grave consequences such as child marriage, school drop-out, violation of women’s rights, and in particular physical and emotional vulnerabilities of women and girls. Revision of laws pertaining to sigheh/temporary marriage while considering the social characteristics of the society can serve as a key solution to minimize these negative impacts.
