Need Advice regarding forced marriage/engagement
« on: June 04, 2015, 12:54:13 PM »
Hi,

I am 23 y/old girl and my parents have fixed an engagement without my consent. I even tried talking to the other family and informed that I am neither interested nor have I given my approval, yet they refused to cancel engagement plans and even sent out cards to their relatives. I am worried that I will be coerced into the engagement and subsequently into marriage probably through force and intimidation .

Q1. What legal avenues can I avail to prevent this from happening? Can I send a legal notice ( or cease desist ) to my parents or the other family to disengage in any activity related to my marriage without my prior consent? If not, then what other options do I have?

Q2. Should I already start collecting proof of some type to support my case that I am being forced? Or is my verbal assertion sufficient for basis of it being forced?

Q3. In the scenario, I am coerced into an engagement , how can I break it or seek legal respite?

Q4. What , if any, other non-legal avenues can I pursue to prevent being forced into marriage?

Thank You.

the act says a valid marriage cannot be made by force.
it has to be wilful.

hence you make a written complaint to the police station in your jurisdiction stating that you are being forced to marry against your wishes.

also communicate with a woman's NGO for help
