The article discusses the matchmaking process of arranged marriages in the migration context. The focus is on general features of arranged marriages rather than differences among different ethnic groups. It is highlighted the importance of recognising the shift from the “consensually” arranged marriages – as from the home country of the parents – to the “forced” arranged marriage, as from the Western migration country. The paper draws attention to the issue of considering all child marriages as forced marriage. Some mental health and clinical issues related to forced arranged marriages are also depicted and the paper calls for further research.

Abstract

The article discusses the matchmaking process of arranged marriages in the migration context. The focus is on general features of arranged marriages rather than differences among different ethnic groups. It is highlighted the importance of recognising the shift from the “consensually” arranged marriages – as from the home country of the parents – to the “forced” arranged marriage, as from the Western migration country. The paper draws attention to the issue of considering all child marriages as forced marriage. Some mental health and clinical issues related to forced arranged marriages are also depicted and the paper calls for further research.
