Iraqi Culture. Core Concepts.
Iraqi households are usually multigenerational, with up to four generations living together. However, the concept of family often extends to include all possible related kin that can be traced in their lineage.
Therefore, Iraqis may refer to hundreds of people as being members of their family. For Kurdish Iraqis, social organisation is more community orientated than family orientated.
Nevertheless, across broad Iraqi culture, family is seen as the basic unit of society and a unified singularity. This is because in collectivist cultures, such as Iraq, the family is the first group a person s at birth. Iraqi interests of the family are expected to supersede those of the dating, and loyalty such as preferential treatment is shown to fellow family members. Wealthy individuals are expected to financially assist less fortunate woman members by providing job opportunities or sharing assets.
Thus, people often operate with the protection of their family honour in mind.
When confronted with criticism of their family, Iraqis can be expected to react by interpreting the facts in such a way as to prevent the discrediting of their family. Iraqi society still views misbehaviour by women as more dishonourable than misbehaviour by men.
Therefore, women are often seen as particularly vulnerable targets that need protection. Women traditionally move into the house of their husband at marriage and come under the control of their in-laws when they marry. The dynamic of parental discipline classically entails doting overprotection of children but strict and heavy reprimand when they misbehave.
Within the household hierarchyelders are deeply respected and deferred to. The father or oldest male is the patriarch of the family. His opinion will prevail and in divorce proceedings of a Muslim couple, it is often pd that children automatically belong to him.

Though women have a lower status than men in the household, they retain ificant influence on household affairs and are usually revered by their children. People tend to answer to their mother obediently throughout their lifetime.
Dating and Marriage. Marriage was once mostly arranged in Iraq; however, people now have the freedom to choose their spouse. Parents still often arrange outings and introductions dates for their children with potential suitors.
However, under traditional Islamic law, the husband is considered to be the financially responsible party in a partnership. Therefore, he must cover the cost of the divorce — especially if there are children involved.
This type of marriage contract is called Talaq unilateral. Dates of ificance. Do's and Don'ts.
