New Campaign: Forced Marriages?


Hello!

The latest advertisement I played part in is a campaign about forced marriages. The campaign is organized by the Dutch government. 


It's still a regular issue for (teenage) boys and girls to partake in a marriage without the consent of one or both parties. I don't want to stick my nose too much into other peoples business and interfere with other cultures, but I can't agree with forcing someone to share their life with the one they don't want to be with. Especially when they're already in love with someone else. Let me point out that right now I'm only talking about those who marry against their will. Possibly, there are people who don't mind an arranged marriage.

Let me know what you think or can you relate to this subject? Do you have friends struggling with this situation? Leave a comment down below.

Also check out the full advertisement:



Love,
Ginatha

    2. Yeah it's very difficult right, the only time we can offer our help is when they come forward with it, but mostly they're scared to ask for help.
      Oh yeah the video is saying that you can visit the website for help ;P

  3. I agree with you, arranged marriages are something I just can't approve of.
    Of course there are cases where it works out fine and both parties end up happy with their situation and even start loving each other but if we're honest those cases are the absolute minority, not to mention that many girls are still underage when they are being forced into arranged marriages.

    1. Yess exactly, it certainly is the very minority, so mostly I find it unacceptable. I feel so sad for the underaged boys and girls. It makes me feel terrible inside.

  4. I don't think being forced into anything is healthy, especially when we're talking about underage girls forcefully being married to old men. It isn't something just out of place, but sadly we're talking about pedophilia and rape. It saddens me that it's an issue in out world.
