People ask  us about court marriage, reasons for growing number of court marriages, legal  service of court marriage and ask for the procedural guidance.  We have answered here to some of very important questions.

As much as marriage in love is a matter of feelings between two people, it is also a legal matter. Court marriage is an official, ethical and legal bond wished by two persons deeply in love with each other, and are willing to start their wedded life. In their decision to get married, our role is more like cupid, but instead of starting feelings in two hearts, we help them tie their legal bond with their vow of dedication, care, and love for each other until death parts them.

Court Marriage is a Personal Choice

Court marriage is a personal choice and has become more common in Pakistani culture. Thousands of couples choose to get married in court or in the lawyer’s chamber by choice every year, especially in big cities like Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore. The reasons may vary, but court marriage is growing in popularity in Pakistan. Modern-day couples are becoming aware of the fact that this may be a more beneficial option than traditional, long-drawn-out forms of marriage.

One of the main reasons could be a desire to give back to society. Many couples donate their money they would have spent on their wedding to a charitable cause instead because they prefer to give back to society. Court marriages are not only faster, but more cost-effective as well. Some people may also choose a court marriage because of their personal priorities.

The process of getting married in a lawyer’s chamber is simple and straightforward as compared to its traditional counterpart where the whole procedure is time-consuming due to intervention by relatives, distributing gifts and flower bouquets, etc. It is often a matter of choice whether people want to go through all these or prefer a simpler option like court marriage. A typical Pakistani wedding may not be suitable for everyone. Rather than inviting the entire family, including distant relatives, they prefer a low-key affair with just a few close loved ones.

Reasons for the Growing Popularity of Court Marriages

Why the court marriages are popular option for young generation?

The growing popularity of court marriages can be attributed to a number of factors. First, the procedure involved in carrying out court marriages is simple and straightforward, so the majority of people can easily understand it. Second, as mentioned earlier, the court does not require consent from parents or family members for such marriages to take place; therefore, this factor also makes it an attractive option for many citizens who wish to get married without involving their families. Thirdly, these types of ceremonies do not require any rituals like those associated with traditional weddings; thus making them more appealing to some people than others who may want something different from what has become commonplace for many years now. This last point can be described as follows: “Court marriages are becoming more popular because they’re becoming less common.”

Parental control over youth is the reason people are opting for court marriages rather than arranged marriages.

Do you want to marry a person of your own choice? Forget it! Such is the mindset of our parents. They think that they are doing the right thing by choosing a good match for their child, but do not realize that this type of behavior is considered parental dictatorship and not just parental control.

Today’s young generation thinks differently from what their parents think. The youth prefer freedom to restrictions and want to make decisions on their own in all spheres of life, especially with regard to marriage. In such scenarios, court marriage becomes the only choice left for the young generation and hence it has become popular among them.

Court marriage has become a popular option because it is less stressful and takes lesser time.

Another reason why these marriages are arranged at the court is that they are less stressful. The couple in a love marriage does not have to take the consent from their parents or relatives and does not have to invite them to the court for their wedding ceremony. On the other hand, for an arranged marriage, it is necessary that the bride and groom meet each other at least once or twice with their parents in order to know each other better. In addition, it is also necessary for them to arrange dinners and lunches before the wedding date so that both of them can get along with each other’s family members. The expense of all these things is also quite high, which takes months of preparation in order to arrange a perfect wedding ceremony. In contrast, a court marriage requires much less time, as there is no need to invite anyone else but just two witnesses who have known you for six months already.

Court marriages are more flexible to arrange

Court marriages are more flexible to arrange. This can be a good thing if you’ve already made up your mind about marrying someone, but want to take some time before tying the knot. For example, maybe one of you is still in school and plans to pursue a post-graduate degree in another country. If you were to get married traditionally, relatives would pressure you into getting married soon because they’re afraid that something might happen that could prevent the marriage from taking place (such as your partner leaving the country).

But with court marriages, there’s no need to worry about what other people think or about parents’ approval—you’ll just have to secure their witnesses for the day of your marriage.

There is less hassle involved in court marriages

For couples who do not want to get involved in expensive and elaborate wedding arrangements, social pressure, family politics and the hassle of waiting for relatives to visit, court marriage is the best way forward. It is also a good option for couples that are very young or have young children, as there isn’t much drama involved in court marriages. Couples just need to provide valid documents and both should be willing to get married and have no objections against each other. A couple will have more free time with each other if they choose court marriage instead of an arranged marriage.

To avoid social pressure and parental control, couples do prefer court marriages over other forms of marriages.

This is why couples prefer court marriages in Pakistan:

 

To avoid social pressure

Many people in Pakistan still do not accept love marriages as culturally appropriate, and would rather couples marry traditionally within the family. This can be stressful for those who want to choose their own partners and avoid the many rules and customs that follow. A lot of people do not realize that court marriage is a legal option and think they have no choice but to succumb to social pressure.

To avoid parental control

 

The family of a couple may feel they have lost control if they witness their children getting married without their permission or involvement. They may try to stop the marriage by threatening or even harming the couple, making it risky for them to proceed with traditional celebrations or ceremonies. But once a couple has been married in court, there is nothing anyone else can do about it but grudgingly accept it.
