5.   Forced Marriages (Zwangsverheiratung)
Forced Marriage  is a breach of human rights!

There is a Forced Marriage when at least one of the spouses has not freely consented to the marriage, but has been forced into it; i.e. one has not made the choice of partner oneself; it has been made, for example, by the family.

In Article 16.2 of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights it says:
“Marriage shall be entered into only with the free and full consent of the intending spouses.”

This applies in all countries throughout the world!

Furthermore, forced Marriage  is a violation of basic human rights, which are part of the constitution (Grundgesetz) of the Federal Republic of Germany.

If one suspects that someone could become the victim of such a crime, in Germany, and especially in the Administrative District, one may turn to the following Advice Centres:
