    I recently came across this excellent website dedicated to forced marriage, which was set up at the end of April. The section on what one should do if a friend/relative is being forced into marriage is particularly useful.

      ForcedMarriage.net is a brilliant site, and I hope this post will help to increase its profile on the net.

      It was built with money from the Forced Marriage Unit and should help improve the efficiency of the FMU in identifying and helping potential victims early.

      The website represents a significant step forward, taking the fight against forced marriage onto the internet. Its launch coincides with a major re-vamp of Karma Nirvana’s website, http://www.karmanirvana.org.uk.

      The web is closing in on problem families.
