Forced marriage, which is not entered into only with the free and full consent of the intending spouses, is violation of internationally recognised human rights standards. In Turkey; there are many types of forced marriage. Protecting perceived cultural or religious ideals is the most significant factor leads to forced marriage. A forced marriage will be a marriage where all kinds of violence in the family will most likely be experienced. Some European countries made forced marriage into a criminal offence, but it is not defined as a criminal offence in Turkey. This study aims to point out the situation and the types of forced marriages in Turkey and to bring suggestions to struggle with forced marriages.
