Improvement of Procedures Associated with Marriage Contracts: Optimal Use of the Conditions in the Marriage Contracts
Since 219,the Information and Research Center (IRC) has worked on the Project on Optimal Use of the Conditions in the Marriage Contracts to promote the rights of women and men,as this project seeks to enable intending spouses to include conditions that protect their rights in the contract document. Initially,the Arab and Islamic literature and practices on conditions of the marriage contract were reviewed. A comparative study between the Islamic jurisprudence and the Jordanian Personal Status Law was conducted with respect to the Sharia standards and the legal and administrative regulation of conditions of the marriage contract. Subsequently,a qualitative research was conducted,where in-depth interviews,focus group discussions and a national survey were conducted with the aim of learning about the society's perceptions and practices about the inclusion of conditions in the marriage contract .
