Fraction of women reforms the related rules

Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency – Parvaneh Salahshouri sociologist and reformist MP referring to marriage age for girls declared: members of cultural commission had some sessions with a Marja in Qom on the matter and we all want to keep our relationships with the Marja and the other Marjas; it was decided that we pay to Islamic, traditional and temporal research more than ever on the matter.

"Under the current legislation of family support the marriage age for girls is thirteen but in the case of father's allow, marriage under 13 years of age will be permissible so there should be reforms hereof", said the MP who is currently a member of the Parliament of Iran representing Tehran, Rey, Shemiranat and Eslamshahr electoral district.

"Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi (Iranian Shia marja' and religious leader) believes that intellectual maturity also should be noteworthy therefore fraction of women plans to attract positive opinions of the other grand marjas accordingly we hope to be able to reform on the current rules", said 53 year old representative and university professor.

According to the Islamic Republic civil code, the legal age of marriage in Iran is 13 for girls and 15 for boys. However, the same Act allows girls below 13 and boys below 15 to married with the consent of their father or the permission of a court judge.

Although little data is available on child marriage in Iran, UNICEF estimates that approximately 17% of girls there are married before the age of 18. The numbers may be even higher as many families in Iran do not register births or underage marriages.
