Make arranged marriages illegal

Comment 9th August 2010

Any arranged marriage to be made illegal and also the right to allow a spouse to be brought into the UK from a foreign country for the marriage to be withdrawn. 

Why does this matter?

This would close a loophole in the law which allows a small specific group of society to enjoy rights and priviliges not offered to the rest of society.   It would also help stop the exploitation of women by forcing them into a marriage they do not want and help reduce the number of 'honour killings' carried out by these groups if the marriage does not go the way they want.
