Changing Marriage Patterns in Lebanon

Adele Khudr

Abstract


Marriage is probably the oldest social institution in human history. It constitutes an important step in starting a family to which both men and women have to be initiated. The age of women at marriage is an important determinant of the type of society, indicating its status as "traditional" or "modern". Age at marriage is related to a number of phenomena including the level of education, the participation of women in the labor force, the economic situation prevailing in a society, and the social perception of marriage.
