Today, in Iran, we are confronted with a somewhat new phenomenon called white marriage, which is also referred to as adherence, homosexuality, black or gray marriage. White marriage is called for a kind of cohabitation without religious or customary identity. This way of life is more prevalent in big cities, especially the capital, which does not mean we are not in cities. One of the groups most associated with this phenomenon is the student community. In this article, we examine the sociological explanation of white marriage formation among the student community of Tehran. Therefore, in this research, we have investigated this issue among 16 couples using an in-depth interpretive methodological approach (Grand Theory) with an in-depth interview technique. After completing interviews and reaching theoretical saturation and finally coding and analyzing data, the categories of "economic problems", "low expectations in these relationships against formal marriage", "emotional deficiency", hot disgrace (divorce and its consequences) as causal conditions, "anonymity", "migration", "individualism", "reduction in the number of marriages" as contextual variables, "discretionary choice", familiarity with homosexuality, "weakening of religious values "as confusing conditions," psychological and sexual support", "women's desire to have a relationship "," men's unwillingness to have a relationship", "diversity "as interactions, " white wedding limitations "," ontological insecurity "as consequences of this type of life were determined.
