Iran Unveils Dating App To Encourage “Lasting And Informed Marriage”

Tehran is turning to tech to protect Iran’s family values that it says are under threat from “outside forces” with a marriage-seeking dating app that requires applicants to undergo psychological testing.

“Family is the devil’s target, and [Iran’s enemies] seek to impose their own ideas” on it,” said head developer Komeil Khojasteh, adding couples will be accompanied by “service consultants” for the first four years of marriage.

Hamdam (“companion” in Farsi) is the latest part of Iran’s drive to combat rising marriage age and declining birth rates, which includes incentives to have more than two children and restricting abortion.
