Frequently Asked Questions

Please see our most common questions regarding Forced Marriage. If you have further questions, contact our friendly team.

What is forced marriage?

Forced marriage is when one or both of the parties don’t or can’t consent to the marriage and abuse or pressure is used to force them. This could include people with learning disabilities or reduced capacity.

Our online Forced Marriage training course teaches your staff about it in-depth including what signs to look out for and how to take the right actions. 

Is forced marriage illegal in the UK? Yes, forced marriage is illegal in England and Wales and includes taking someone overseas to force them to marry and marrying someone who lacks the mental capacity to consent to the marriage. 
What is the difference between forced and arranged marriage? The key difference between forced and arranged marriage is that forced marriage is a lack of consent from one or both people and where pressure and/or abuse may be used. Whereas, arranged marriage involves adults who always have a choice and have consented to this agreement.
