In order to organize and conduct a wedding, thousands of rupees are spent. Many of these costs are incurred through borrowing. In consequence, societal norms put a lot of financial pressure on the bride’s family. Therefore, a man cannot find a wife and start a family if he is not financially stable.
Marriage has become so complex in today’s society that many people wait until their mid-thirties before tying the knot. This creates much frustration and unrest among the populace. What followed is an inclination towards immoral activities in order to meet personal needs – physical and emotional. Humans are naturally social beings, meaning we require companionship for a tranquil family life. But society has made marriage incredibly hard, leading to premarital relationships becoming the norm nowadays.
The advantages of court marriages
Pakistan’s court marriage advantages
According to Pakistani law, court marriages are legal
Performing a court marriage is simple, easy, and inexpensive.
The court can help you get married to the person of your choice.
In Pakistan, couples have the legal right to marry through court or traditional means. The procedure for court marriages is not as complicated as it may seem and is pretty straightforward for young couples of 18. The solemnization of such a union, though generally not done in the actual courtroom, takes place with the help of either a lawyer or Nikah Khawan in their office. In this way, court marriages provide an easier option than traditional ones.
Lawyers assist in a court marriage, which is formally approved by the Nikah Registrar/Magistrate. A Nadra marriage certificate is issued and registered by the Union Council of your locality. The Nikah Nama, also known as a marriage contract, is issued and registered by the local Nikah Registrar. Here it is important to know that registering a marriage is necessary as a non-registered marriage is considered a crime.
Rather than spending a lot of money and time on expensive wedding ceremonies and rituals, you can save money and time.
Court marriages may have far-reaching effects, particularly in Pakistan, a predominantly conservative society. Oftentimes, we come across stories of families’ extreme responses to unions of personal choice. These include filing an FIR against the husband and his family alleging kidnapping and adultery charges on behalf of the bride’s family for harassment or to demand divorce. Nevertheless, such cases usually become unfounded once the bride gives her statement under oath.

In Pakistan, the Hindu court marriage process is more or less the same as the Muslim one. Hindu court marriages were not recorded in Pakistan before. According to the Hindu Marriage Act 2017 passed by the National Assembly, Hindu court marriages can now be registered.
Hindu court marriages in Pakistan are valid only if both brides and grooms are at least 18 years old and haven’t been married before. The two parties must also be outside of the prohibited degree of relationship in order to be eligible for a Hindu court marriage. Hindu marriage certificates are known as Shadi Parats. They are registered by a government-appointed marriage registrar.
