Abstract:   (493 Views)

Numerous studies indicated that consanguineous marriages are associated
with the increased risk for several diseases. The prevalence of consanguinity
has a geographical distribution, it is high among Asian and African populations,
including Islamic countries and very rare in European populations.
Given the hazards effects of such marriages on health of offspring, efforts
should be made to identify the reasons of its tendency in each population
and its cultural roots can be identified in order to reduce it in the population.
In the present study the frequency of consanguinity in folktales collected
form Bandar Khamir and Bastak (Hormozgan province) was investigated. In
70 folktales from Bandar Khamir, 35 marriages were recorded. From these,
26, 1, and 8 were marriages between unrelated persons, first-degree relatives
and first cousins, respectively. In 13 folktales collected form Bastak, 10
marriages (9 with unrelated and 1 with first cousins) were recorded. It may
conclude that consanguineous marriage is a deeply rooted cultural trait and
it is associated with positive attitude to this type of marriages.
Keywords: Consanguineous marriages, Hormozgan province, Folktales, Iran.
