“Selecting and choosing a right partner is one of the most important steps of entering a new life. The positive performance and prosperity of family is up to a successful marriage.

Families and other authorities should inform youngsters about the negative outcomes of this phenomenon. Unfortunately some people boast to their online marriages.” Aslani added.
