forced islamic marriage is common

Reader comment on item: Bridegrooms Who Marry in Fear

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Jun 1, 2007 at 15:59

The muslims have a long and wrongful history of forcing two people to marry by fear of death or fear of other harsh punishment. There may be some people who are happy with arranged marriages , but not all and the ones who want out ,are in danger.
