Couples failing to register civil marriages
The BBC Asian Network reports that a growing number of young Muslims in the UK are entering marriages that are not legally recognised. This, the Network says, is because couples are having an Islamic wedding without the civil ceremony needed for the marriage to be recognised under British law.
The report quotes Aina Khan, a family lawyer with Blacklaws Davis LLP, who says:
"It's a rising trend for Muslim couples to have marriages that are not legally recognized….. My colleagues and I are having to deal with hundreds of cases where things have gone wrong because the wedding has not been registered. Because the couples only have co-habitant rights, it is extremely expensive and complicated to use the law to get the individuals any justice once the marriage ends.''
THEY DON'T SEEK CIVIL RECOGNITION FOR THEIR MARRIAGES BECAUSE THEY DON'T RECOGNIZE WESTERN CIVIL LAW!
