    Just to inform everyone, the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection Act) 2007 came into force on 25th November 2008 and it has effectively made forced marriage a criminal offence (see http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2007/ukpga_20070020_en_1) :D

    Forced marriage should be criminal - there is no doubt about it - it is an invasion to one's freedom and a breach of one's private life.
