 The Life of Shoghi Effendi
Even in marriage, Shoghi Effendi's life was linked to the development of the Faith, as he cabled the rejoicing Bahá'ís of North America in late March 1937:
In the midst of obstacles, anxiety, material and financial problems, and the terrorism and civil war which accompanied the creation of the state of Israel, Shoghi Effendi was developing "the heart and nerve-center of a world-embracing Faith"[33] and bringing closer to fulfillment the promises of Bahá'u'lláh in the Tablet of Carmel.
He established the International Bahá'í Council in 1951, the forerunner of the Universal House of Justice, and appointed three contingents of Hands of the Cause of God, "the Chief Stewards of Bahá'u'lláh's embryonic World Commonwealth".

 The Bahá'í Community of Canada
Provinces and territories have not only legally recognized Baha'i marriage, but have given recognition to Baha'i holy days for the faith's school children.
Religion in Canada, during the first half of the 20th century, played a formidable role in crystallizing the cultural, social, and economic forces of the country.
Given the religious singleness of the early Bahá'ís in Canada, the length of Bahá'í membership as an expression of commitment, was remarkable.

 Re: Bahai Marriage
Regarding the time to hold the 19 Day Feast: any time most convenient for all the believers is permissible, as long as it is between sunset and sunset of the calendar day on which the feast Ý58Ý falls, as our Bah·'Ì days begin and end at sunset.
"The Bah·'Ì Day starts and ends at sunset, and consequently the date of the celebration of Bah·'Ì Feasts should be adjusted to conform to the Bah·'Ì Calendar Time..."
With reference to your question in connection with the observance of Bah·'Ì Holy Days; the Bah·'Ì day begins and ends at sunset.

 The Bah‡`’ World, Vol. 18, Part Five: In Memoriam
Although Jah‡n was a fierce opponent of the Bah‡`’ Faith at the time of her marriage and for some time later, she embraced the Cause of the Blessed Beauty and became a devout servant as a result of a dream in which she saw Bah‡`u'll‡h.
Ardeshir's Bah‡`’ life was lived entirely in the spirit of the words of Shoghi Effendi who encouraged the believers to be `like the fountain or spring that is continually emptying itself of all it has and is continually being refilled from an invisible source.
She continually inspired the Bah‡`’ communities to participate in joint teaching efforts and aroused their enthusiasm by relating inspiring accounts of the progress of the Faith in India, the Philippines, South and Central America and many other countries she had either visited or had news of.

Hitherto regarded as a sect of Isl·m, the Bah·'Ìs of Egypt, who for the most part are of Muslim origin, and unable therefore to refer for purposes of marriage and divorce to the recognized religious tribunals of any other denomination, find themselves in consequence in a delicate and anomalous position.
The Animating Purpose of Bah·'Ì Institutions And now, it behooves us to reflect on the animating purpose and the primary functions of these divinely-established institutions, the sacred character and the universal efficacy of which can be demonstrated only by the spirit they diffuse and the work they actually achieve.
They have also decided to accompany the text of their petition with a copy of the judgment of the Court, with selections from Bah·'Ì writings, and with the document that sets forth the principles of their national constitution which, with few exceptions, is identical with the Declaration and By-laws promulgated by your Assembly.

 The Transmission of Cultural Values in Persian Baha’I Refugee Families
Although explaining Persian family values to their friends can sometimes be difficult, neither the Persian culture nor the Bahá’í belief system (with its emphasis on sexual abstinence before marriage) appear to be a social obstacle.
There is no evidence of the extreme cultural reactions sometimes seen in refugee families: total abandonment of the home culture by children ashamed of their parents’ heritage (Cummins 1986) or the formation of xenophobic enclaves with a very limited circles of associates.
The goal of this study was to ascertain the cultural identity of the Persian Bahá’í parents and their children and note areas of congruence and divergence.

 The Baha'i Marriage Vow
The vow is spoken by the bride and the groom in the presence of two witnesses who are acceptable to the Local Spiritual Assembly of the community in which the marriage takes place.
To a culture used to the more elaborate traditional Christian marriage vow, this simple verse may seem vague or insufficient, yet I believe that in spite of its outward simplicity, it is rich with meaning and guidance, not only for marriage but for life in general.
In terms of ceremony nothing more is required, although the couple will normally design a simple service involving prayers and readings to accompany the speaking of the vow.

 MuslimAccess - Fiqh-us-Sunnah
Some said: 'He married her before he put on ihram, but the news of his marriage became known while he was in the state of ihram.
They also hold that it is not desirable for a woman in the state of ihram to use henna, and that it is unlawful for her to do so if she is in 'iddah after the death of her husband.
If someone puts on the garb of ihram without uttering talbiyah or glorifying Allah or bringing a sacrificial animal, his ihram is not valid, because ihram, according to them, is a combination of intention and one of the rites of Hajj.

Al Bah explained that the project had not only been created to prevent late marriages and to stem the rising number of single girls, but also to provide opportunities for divorcees and widows to remarry and to create awareness about the importance of choosing the right life partner and prevent marital problems.

By that he means breaking of laws, such as the consent of parents to marriage etc., or acts of such an immoral character as to damage the good name of the Faith.

The enterprise of marriage and family is in a critical condition, attacked by powerful internal and external forces that range from pathological individual expectations of marriage to legislation that attacks its very foundation.
The nuclear family, consisting of parents and their children, is now being threatened by divorce, collective child care, and communal living.
That family in which there is an abundance of assurance and approval has a most vital ingredient for the nurturance of its members.
