Power structure in the most Iranian families has evolved from authoritarian (patriarchal) to semi-democratic. This transformation has affected all aspects of the family, especially its legal dimension, in terms of the rights of members. One of the most important rights under influence of evolution is husband's rights. Therefore, in this research, we tried to examine the effect of the transformation on husband's rights, and we concluded that since the requirements of time and place necessitate the necessity of adapting laws with developments, therefore the legislator appropriate to the evolution of the power structure in the family has introduced new laws or amended former laws regarding the right of presidency, the right of divorce and the right of polygamy. However, there are still some affairs related to these rights that have changed, but have not attracted the attention by the legislator and, as a result, have created legal gaps; therefore, changes to previous laws or the establishment of new laws are recommended by using the legal capacity of them.
