Recent trends of marriage in Iran

May 16, 2018

Data about marriages in Iran points to the declining number of formal (arranged) marriages in recent decades despite strong cultural and religious traditions favoring such marriages. Some social researchers have linked these declining trends to the economic constraints caused by a lack of well-paid jobs and a high cost of housing for the younger population. This review compiles the previous research findings and focuses on attitudinal changes and the possibility of the increase in temporary marriages as complementary explanations for the declining number of formal marriages in Iranian society.

#487 Knitting in PEARL
This week we're discussing math and things made from yarn. We welcome mathematician Daina Taimina to the show to discuss her book "Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes: Tactile Mathematics, Art and Craft for all to Explore", and how making geometric models that people can play with helps teach math. And we speak with research scientist Janelle Shane about her hobby of training neural networks to do things like name colours, come up with Halloween costume ideas, and generate knitting patterns: often with hilarious results.
