Love Marriage or Civil Marriage in Pakistan

LOVE MARRIAGE: BOND BETWEEN FAMILIES

Usually, Pakistani men and women follow traditional wedding traditions. While there are local and regional variations, most Pakistani marriages adhere to Islamic jurisprudence. Pakistani communities throughout the world continue to practice these traditions, not only in Pakistan but also in other countries. The marriage union is not just a union between one spouse and the other, but can also establish a bond between their families.

TYPES OF MARRIAGES IN PAKISTAN

The first step in a traditional Pakistani wedding is to find a suitable groom or bride. Those above the age of 18 are considered to be capable of becoming grooms and brides. In Pakistan, mostly, the marriages are traditional arranged marriages, semi-arranged marriages, or love marriages (civil marriages).

ARRANGED MARRIAGES

The term “arranged marriage” refers to a marriage that can be induced by a member of the family, a close friend or a third party by helping to bring together two supposedly compatible individuals for marriage. Caste and creed is still very important in matrimonial connections. It is very rare for grooms and brides to have ever met before their wedding day, and therefore any interaction between them is little more than small talk. In the newer generations, this form of marriage is becoming less popular as it is considered more traditional.

SEMI-ARRANGED LOVE MARRIAGES

In Pakistani society, there is an increasing trend of semi-arranged marriages (a form of dating), where men and women interact with one another before marriage. There has usually been a lot of time spent getting to know one another, and thus the man and woman are used to each other. Marriage may or may not be the end result of this process and can occur over a period of hours, months, or some time. As a result of this, if both parties agree that they would both be happy to marry. Normally, a prospective bridegroom will discuss with his family the possibility of contacting the family of the potential bride to send his marriage proposal.

Love Marriages

Pakistan’s media and internet have increased awareness of human rights, resulting in an increase in Love marriages (civil marriages). Arranged marriage is still a norm, thus, love marriages are seen as casual in society. There are a growing number of love marriages (also known as court marriages) that have become more and more popular since the concept of “family consent” is being abolished. Nonetheless, such a free-will challenge to traditions in Pakistan is considered dishonorable since it denigrates the institution of the family. A marriage without family consent is generally frowned upon.

Honor Killing In Pakistan

The growing trend of marriage at will and love, as well as the interaction between young males and females in the country, makes elders who are more conservative feel dishonored, resulting in honor killings being more prevalent than they are in other countries. The majority of the time, women are the ones who are killed, although in some cases couples are as well. According to the Pakistan Human Rights Commission, approximately 1000 of these cases are reported every year in the media in Pakistan, while many others may go unreported.
