“ورقة سياسات مساواة رقم 7: الزواج في الإسلام بوصفه شراكة بين طرفين متساويين” تتعرض لأهمية المساواة بين الزوجين، والتي يجب أن تتجسد في القوانين، والسياسات والممارسات، بشكل يتوافق مع واقعنا المعيش اليوم. هذا الأمر ليس بالشيء العسير، وقد حدث بالفعل باستلهام تعاليم القرآن الكريم، والسنة الفعلية للرسول عليه الصلاة والسلام في معاملة عائلته التي تجلت بها معاني الثقة، والاحترام، والرحمة، والرعاية؛ وهو ما نراه كذلك في بعض الممارسات التاريخية للمسلمين.
