What can a person do if they're being forced to marry an individual they don't want to marry.
Unfortunately, this is common in many families, where young men and young women are forced to agree to marry people they don't want to marry. So this can be a very difficult situation to be in. However, it is important to remember that if you don't want to marry a person, then never, ever agreed to marry them. Because if you agree to marry them, for the sake of others, then you will suffer. And later down the road when you will end the marriage. Again, you will suffer. So it's important to be firm in your decision. If you do not want to marry someone, please do not agree to marry them. How to deal with the family in this situation, it is important to have clear
communication with them. Talk to your family, and explain to them why you don't want to marry that certain individual. Give the reasons tell them very clearly about your hesitation. Tell them communicate very clearly about your feelings. Communication is a gift that Allah soprano tada has given people, so use that. And if despite you're talking to your family, they're still forcing you. Then seek the help of certain family members or certain people in the community to speak to your parents in order to convince them so be firm in your decision. Communicate with your family, and seek the help of others. If you need it.
