Ma’sumeh Abad, member of the Social Committee of the Tehran City Council, defines divorce as a “social ill.” She said, “The statistical increase in divorce has led to spiraling costs in the country,” adding that the children of divorce are vulnerable and that steps taken to date have not been very effective. Furthermore, no institution in Iran is officially responsible for issues related to young married couples and their shared lives. Ma’sumeh Abad says that presently, newly married couples are pushed into an ocean without knowing any effective communication strategies. She concluded that “serious determination” was necessary to prevent divorce.
