Historically, most of the marriages in the Arab culture are arranged marriages; usually the parents will choose the partner, inform the man and the woman of their intentions and proceed with the arrangement. In some more liberal communities, parents may try to recommend some choices and allow the children to choose.

Therefore, religious rituals and social traditions penetrate the whole process of getting married. In the novel under study, there are many terms associated with marriage and many of them pose certain problems in translation.
