How to force a Muslim marriage introduction
- by admin
Muslim marriages will soon be mandatory for all married couples in NSW, with a new proposal for a marriage introduction message.
Key points:Under the proposal, the marriage introduction would be a one-off eventThe announcement follows a major increase in Muslim marriages in NSW from 3,000 a year in 2012 to 12,000 last yearThe new proposal will be unveiled on Thursday as part of the state government’s commitment to increase Muslim marriages from 3-4,000 in the next five years.
It will be introduced by state Liberal MP Chris Plett, who has introduced a bill to introduce the mandatory marriage introduction in NSW.
“For too long we have seen Muslim Australians being forced into a marriage,” Mr Plett said.
“We’re going to start from scratch and I want to get this right.”
The NSW Muslim community is the fastest growing in the country and the one of the fastest-growing communities in the world, so it’s only right that we start with this right now.
“Mr Plett will present the bill to the Liberal National Party’s parliamentary committee next week.
He will say the introduction of a mandatory marriage in NSW would provide a better opportunity for Muslim women to marry without having to face the same pressures that have driven so many other Australian families to the altar.”
I believe it’s the right thing to do,” he said.
The bill, called the Mandatory Marriage introduction Act, would see all new Muslim marriages require a two-year process before the wedding.
The process would also see the couple have to submit a copy of the marriage certificate to the NSW Department of Health, as well as submitting a declaration that they would not have an objection to the marriage if it was legal.”
If they don’t want to do it, we can do it,” Mr Grewal said.
Mr Patt’s bill will include provisions for the creation of an online marriage guide for Muslim Australians.”
There are a number of other options that would make it easier for people to do the marriage and be ready to move forward,” he told the ABC.”
This is the first step, but the legislation will get us to the next step.
“The bill is expected to pass the NSW Legislative Assembly, and will be considered by the NSW Health Minister.
It comes as the government is working to pass legislation to introduce a mandatory two-month wait before Muslim marriages can be completed.
The legislation would see people being forced to wait three months before being allowed to marry, as part a wider push to improve the quality of marriage in Australia.
