Abstract: 

The main inquiry in this study is whether a woman's place of residence can influence her time of marriage. Modernization, economic and gender equality theories have been employed to design an analytical model for this study and consequently to find a response to the research question. Iran Statistical Center carried out a project that collected socio-economic characteristics of Iranian households in 2001. The required data came from this source and all the women who married at least once were selected. The results of the t-test show that the average age of marriage of women differs significantly in rural (17.6) and urban (18.7) areas. There is a significant relationship between place of residence and other independent variables in the study. Highest correlation is reported between women's place of residence and their level of education, such that urban women have a higher level of education than rural women. On the other hand, there is no relationship between place of residence and women's age at marriage in a multiple regression model. This would lead us to conclude that place of residence has not a meaningful influence on the age of marriage but other variables like level of education can influence age of marriage through the place of residence.
