Marriage is a fundamental social behavior which affects the quality of family life and survival. The spouses especially women are the linchpin of the life in families. The youth idea related to their future marriage criteria and their difficulties ahead has an important role for this vital social behavior.

For 82% of male and about 90% of female students believe that ethics is the most important criterion for choosing a spouse. Other criteria including education level, religious beliefs and responsibility of couple are priority of spouse choosing between 32% to 80% of students.

Both gender students believe that the ethical aspect plays an important role for their choosing; however the economic support especially for housing provision is a priority.
