Iran's dating revolution: For the first time in its history, Unreported World visited Iran for a rare chance to look at the realities of life for young people there. In a country bound by strict Islamic law, more Iranians than ever before are staying single. The government is so concerned that it set up an online dating agency to which they gave us exclusive access. Shaunagh Connaire went to Tehran in 2016 to find out about dating, Iranian style.

This episode first aired on 13/05/2016.

I felt too sad for Ali and zohre. But at the end of the film; It makes me happy. GOD bless both of them.

It must be pretty damn annoying constantly having old people tell you what to feel and think.

The US divorce rate is nowhere near 93%. What a load of garbage.

What I liked about this documentary is that the reporter didn't try to make them look like stupid or out dated because of how the do things, she was very respectful, I do not agree with the way they do it but I don't make them look stupid

13 million singles and 250 marriages. That`s the result when state is trying to do what he shouldn`t.

As an Iranian woman, I can say this documentary wasn't accurate, these kinds of marriages are too traditional and don't happen a lot, or at least I can say it's rare especially in younger & up to date generation at all.

the parents make things more difficult, adding extra rules which islam never asks for.

Iโ€™ve been to Iran many times, the dating and social life are exactly like us! We donโ€™t tell our parents everything, neither do they! Probably the friendliest, kindest, most welcoming people Iโ€™ve ever met!

"10 boyfriends in high school and another 10 in college??" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

At 30 years old I have enough trouble trying to find a man I can tolerate for more than 20 minutes. I didn't even have my first boyfriend until after I got my degree.

But dating 20 men over my lifetime?? FOR FREE?? I would go criminally insane.
