Since the family and the stability of its foundation, for providing the proper and required functions, has particular importance, and on the other hand, there is the possibility of collapse and destabilize due to various behaviors and factors,criminalization of behaviors against family in the Imāmie jurisprudence and law is taken into consideration. Meanwhile jurisprudential rulings include avoiding criminalization of the most family violations. In contrast, a group of lawyers and sages believe that the criminalization in this field is against to the nature of the family and its requirements, referring to the family privacy and the separation of morality from the law. According to the findings of this study, Islam also does not endorse criminalization in the family except in sexual relations, and has emphasized on solving the family problems through other ways, like establishing a family court, reconciliation, and so forth.
