Abstract EN

The study aimed at investigating the attitudes of Jordanian youths toward marriage and its relationship with some variables such as gender, age, place of residence, level of education and income.

For this purpose, a questionnaire was designed which consisted of two parts: the first part included the following variables: gender, age, place of residence, level of education and income.

The second part included (44) items and consisted of four dimensions, selection of partner, forms of marriage, outlook toward marriage, and the relationship between the couple and their families.

A simple random sample of (1882) students was selected.

The results revealed that: there are no statistically significant differences in the attitudes of Jordanian youths toward marriage according to the following variables: sex, age, place of residence, educational level and income.

The results also showed that the selection of a partner that is favorable to the youth is that which is based on love.

Also, it was found that the majority of respondents supported early marriage because they think that it protects them from sinning.

Regarding outlook toward marriage, the majority of respondents felt that marriage results in financial fatigue, and for the relations between the couple and their families, they were encouraged to waive certain rights when dealing with a life partner to avert problems.

In addition, they believe that residing near the family leads to marital problems.

The study suggested some of the following recommendations: the need to activate the role of social workers and psychologists in Jordanian universities, the media must take these issues seriously and more research is needed to identify the most important problems facing the young people who are planning for marriage.
