In the Arab world, the family, anchored by marriage, is the primary social unit. Marriage transcends a mere contract, embodying a "strong covenant" in Islamic terms and emphasizing future generations' care and education. The study of marriage, given its significance in the Arab context, spans across multiple disciplines, underlining its interdisciplinary nature. The report offers a nuanced understanding of marriage in the Arab world, considering the unique characteristics of various geographical regions. There's criticism over the classification that blends geographical and developmental criteria, resulting in misleading categorizations of Arab countries. Specific regions, such as Somalia, Djibouti, and the Comoros Islands, have seen a return to traditional marriage customs due to various socio-political challenges. Reports from Egypt and Sudan delve into the unique challenges and evolving forms of marriages in these countries, influenced by factors like migration, economic changes, and societal norms.
