Infidelity and remarriage is responsible for eight out of ten divorces in Iran, a cultural director of Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University said here on Monday. Zahra Kashaniha largely blamed "affairs and temporary or permanent remarriages" for the increase in the country's divorce rate over the past years.

According to figures released by State Birth Registration Organization, a number of 51,192 divorces have been registered over the first five months of 1388 (began March 21, 2009).

Men aged between 25 and 29, and women 20 to 24 account for the highest rate of divorce, the figure showed.

There was an 11 percent rise in the divorce rate, compared with the last year.

Not all marriages fail for the same reason. Nor is there usually one reason for the breakdown of a particular marriage. Nevertheless, some reasons are quoted more often than others, including poor communication, financial problems, lack of commitment to the marriage, dramatic change in priorities, and last but not the least infidelity.
