Significant Reasons for Court Marriages in Pakistan
Generation Gab happens in every generation. This gap has started to increase towards court marriage and away from legal marriages. Because children adopt many new things, they don’t follow the rules of their families. Parents wanted their children to obey their rules. Children don’t understand that their parents are their caretakers, sponsor, and more experience. Also, they do what they want. They become rebels and get court marriage of their own will. Before court marriage, parents must understand their children’s thinking and know what their children want.
Cousin marriage refers to a relationship in which the couples are cousins. Cousin marriages are ideal in some cultures and societies and are openly promoted and anticipated. Within Pakistan, Cousin marriages are considered unique, excellent, and perfect because parents think cousin marriages are safe and without any frustration. But in the new generation, most of the children dislike marrying their cousins; parents pressurize them to get married to their cousins. To escape this horrible situation, they make their decisions and get married of their own will through court.
Parents give freedom to their children

Youngsters will make relationships with everyone in the organization; yet, because children lack experience in their lives, these relationships might lead to adverse outcomes. For example, in Pakistan, many children addicted to drugs form negative relationships. Giving children greater independence means that parents will lose control of their children and lose healthy relationships with them. As a result, children will not obey their parents and will make their judgments. For example, they marry off their own will through court.

Parents want to arrange their children’s wedding by their own will, but children disagree with their parent’s decision.
