What is a forced marriage?
A forced marriage is a marriage that is performed under duress and without the full and informed consent or free will of both parties.

Being under duress includes feeling both physical and emotional pressure. Some victims of forced marriage are tricked into going to another country by their families. Victims fall prey to forced marriage through deception, abduction, coercion, fear, and inducements.

A forced marriage may be between children, a child and an adult, or between adults. Forced marriages are not limited to women and girls, as boys and men are also forced to marry against their will.

A forced marriage is considered to be domestic violence and an abuse of human rights. Victims of forced marriages often experience physical violence, ra*e, abduction, false imprisonment and enslavement, sexual abuse, mental and emotional abuse, and at times, murder.
