Heart Breaking Story Of A Teen Crying On Her Wedding Day Because She Was Forced To Marry An Older Police Chief.

Heartbreaking Moment When a Teen Was in Tears as she is forced to marry an Older ‘Police Chief’.

Forced marriage is a marriage in which one or more of the parties is married without his or her consent or against his or her will. A forced marriage differs from an arranged marriage, in which both parties consent to the assistance of their parents or a third party (such as a matchmaker) in choosing a spouse.

There is often a continuum of coercion used to compel a marriage, ranging from outright physical violence to subtle psychological pressure. Forced marriage is still practiced in various cultures across the world, particularly in parts of South Asia and Africa. Some scholars object to use the term "forced marriage" because it invokes the consensual legitimating language of marriage (such as husband/wife) for an experience that is precisely the opposite.

A woman had been threatened by her groom to accept his hand in marriage, or he will “kidnap” her and force her to do so. Every woman wants to get married at the right age and to the right person. Having the perfect wedding is every person’s dream, but forcing a wedding on somebody who isn’t ready is definitely not right. Sadly, many teens and children are “forced” to marry older husbands as per country’s custom.

When these young girls are married off too soon, their entire wellbeing and personal development are in danger. They are often disempowered and will remain dependent on their older husbands. They are neither physically nor emotionally ready to become mothers and wives, and yet they are forced into such a life.

Kheda Goilabiyev’s family was threatened with ‘unpleasant consequences’ by 47-year-old Nazhud Guchigov, a police chief if her parents refused to marry her. She was just 17 years old. She looked stunning in her white wedding dress that was embraced in exquisite lace detail and dazzling jewel-embellished veil—but they could not hide the sadness etched on her face. It was visible that she didn’t want to get married.

Guchigov is the Chechen Republic’s chief of police and is also the key ally of Chechen’s Head of Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov. According to reports, he already has a wife and a son who is way older than teenage Goilabiyeva when he decided to marry the latter. Goilabiyeva’s parents apparently did not approve the union but they were left with no choice when the chief police threatened to kidnap her if they opposed the marriage.

Following the controversial marriage, the public was outraged when Moscow’s child rights commissioner, Pavel Astakhov appeared to publicly support the marriage by saying, “Caucasian women are all shriveled with wrinkles by the age of 27”.

The fact that Guchigov abused his power to marry the girl, it shows how the marriage is not built on trust and compassion and violates Goilabiyeva’s rights as a woman and a wife.

Every year 15 million girls are married as children and teens, denied their rights to health, education, and opportunity, and robbed of their childhood. If we do nothing, by 2030, an estimated 15.4 million girls a year will marry as children and teens.
