Girl who Never Laughs. Making the girl to laugh is the condition for marrying her. This motif is a magical act leading to the girlchr('39')s gestation. It is also a sexual act that links to sexual intercourse. Because of the connection between fairytale and old religious beliefs, it is possible to apperceive two kinds of magical-religious thought in the mentioned motif: based on the first idea, a woman does not need a man to get pregnant and thus pregnancy is related to magical performances like laughter. In the second idea, the role of men in the process of childbearing has been recognized and accepted. Moreover, based on the connection between myth and fairytales, we can retrieve the myth associated with this motif which is now unknown among Iranian mythology.
