arranged / forced marriages

If you come from a culture which accepts forced marriages, it is likely that you will feel pressurised to consent to what your family are proposing for you. They may be pressuring you emotionally and psychologically into the marriage, and telling you that if you don't marry you will bring shame on the family. If you feel that you are agreeing to a marriage due to family or community pressure or emotional blackmail, this is a forced marriage. It is your human right to choose who you want to marry, or to choose not to marry at all.
