Offences Against Women: NRI's Fake Marriages

Dr. Renu Saini

Abstract: The institution of marriage is the very foundation of a stable family and civilized society. Marriage is a culturally approved relationship usually between a man and a woman that lays a foundation of the beginning of the family. Marriage is considered to be one of the most essential institutions of the society. One of the outcomes of these formidable changes in the institution of marriage is the NRI marriages; where in Indian women are entering into matrimonial alliances with NRIs. The increasing movement and migration of people from one country to other country for different reasons ranging from employment to business or from education to tourism has resulted in the large-scale migration of people from India to places of opportunities to earn livelihood and improve the economic conditions. The purpose of the study is to analyze the different aspects of NRI marriages. The only way to lessen instances of sham NRI marriages is to first spread awareness amongst the gullible public about the positive and negative outcomes of such marriages. Codification of laws related to Private International law is of essence. The only challenge to all of these possible solutions is unrelenting patriarchal mindset of our society, which, until the time it is made to yield to reason will not allow awareness to spread and change to occur with respect to NRI marriages and law which, perhaps inadequately, govern it.
