Scottish Government's forced marriage campaign

ForcedMarriageNo-one should ever be emotionally or physically forced into marrying someone they do not want to.

Being emotionally or physically forced to marry is not only wrong but it is illegal. A campaign to raise awareness of forced marriage and help those at risk is currently running across Scotland.

Remember that this is not your fault and you are not alone. Do not be afraid to speak out.

If you are worried that this might be happening to you or someone you know, support is available.
