~ Marriage In Morocco ~

Marriage is highly valued and very much associated with procreation, so that marriage without children is almost unthinkable, revealed a survey conducted recently by a group of researchers for the Hassan II University of Mohammedia.


More than 90% of Moroccans, men and women, favour marriage..

A total of 1,000 people, representing all the Moroccan regions, were questioned. The criteria for choosing the population surveyed were based on the place of residence (urban/rural), gender, age, marital status, educational level and profession.

This national survey on Moroccan society's values concluded that more than 90% of Moroccans, men and women, favour marriage. Eighty five percent of them say it is preferable to marry before 25.

Early marriage is associated with women and the late one with men. Most of the population said that over 25 is the ideal age for men to marry.

By and large, the researchers reached a number of important conclusions concerning marriage, marital relations, and parental relations.

They found that both men and women felt that the most desirable quality in the spouse is the “Maâqoul” (seriousness) and obedience counts a lot in marital relations.

The results showed that girls' marriages are often arranged for her, but that most Moroccans favour free choice.

They also concluded that family solidarity enjoys a central position in Moroccans' lives. It is felt that old parents should be taken care of by their children and not by the state or charities.

The survey was designed to come up with a general idea about Moroccan society's values, concerning mainly family, tradition, religion, politics, work and leisure.

Earlier this year, Minister of Justice Mohamed Bouzoubaâ said that marriage rate increased by 3.48% between 2004 and 2005.

In January 2004, the kingdom introduced important amendments to the family code with view to enhancing women and children rights, and reinforcing family ties.

I think she’s pulled this labsa off very well and she looks lovely. She’s sitting crossed legged on the hamaria, and it is wobbly when you walk and your head feels very heavy.

I haven't seen a lebssa fessia worn for many years now. Everyone I know who wore it at their wedding say the same thing: it weighs a tonne and is both scratchy & hot. I do think it is one of the best wedding outfits tho'. Unique to us.

This lebsa is very popular in the Janoub though, but not every bride can wear this outfit as you require a fuller face. I think the Fessa outfit is my all time fave.

Its definitely beautiful - but like most looks, a rounder face helps carry it off. It's like takhitats; they don't look too hot on stick-thin girls. They need curves to show off the cut.

I always wanted to wear that lebssa when I got married but when I suggested it to my negaffa, she looked shocked and claimed that noone has worn it for years. My aunts said the same thing. Oh well, I guess they tricked me then
