The Arab country of Iran rounds out the list of highest marriage rates in the world. Surprisingly, Iran also has a high rate of divorce that is steadily climbing. Family has traditionally been very important in the Arab world, and Iran even has a designated day to celebrate family values: Marriage Day. Due to the increase in divorce rates, Marriage Day was changed to No Divorce Day in 2010, and no divorces were to be granted on that day. This rising statistic, while arguably not good for the family unit, shows an increase in women’s independence both socially and economically. With more opportunities in education and jobs, women are able to leave unhealthy marriages and support themselves more easily than they ever have before. (Photo Credit:
