Forced Marriage



I want to ask you a question… My grandfather is forcing my father to make me marry with my cousin… my grandfather blackmails my father that he will not forgive my father if he will not make me marry my cousin. I am not willing to do so…Does my grandfather have the right to forcefully do this ?? Please guide me about this .. I will be very much thankful to you.. I am in big trouble. thanks

I’m sorry to hear about your situation.

The consent of both girl and boy is very crucial condition for a marriage to take place. Otherwise it is “Batil” I.e. void

Praying that all goes well
