Forced marriage

Forced marriage is illegal, it can happen in secret and can also be planned by parents, family or religious leaders. It may involve physical abuse, sexual abuse or emotional abuse.

Forced marriage is not the same as arranged marriage. In an arranged marriage, people always have a choice about whether they get married or not.
