Online courses launched amid rising divorce rates and people opting to marry later in life.



    Divorce rate is rising rapidly in Iran and people are getting married much later in life, this has become an issue that is starting to worry officials in Iran.

    Iran's Youth Organisation have launched a series of courses, with advice on everything from sex to living happily after.

    The founders call it a step towards a happily married life - a website aimed at teaching young people how to achieve wedded bliss.

    Though match-making is not yet part of the course, it is being considered for the future.
