IKFS postpones Seminar on 11 April, 2014 instead of 26 February
February 27, 2014, 11:04 am

Indo-Kuwait Friendship Society, a non-profit socio-cultural friendship NRI association in Kuwait has postponed the Seminar on “problems relating to NRI Marriages”. The delay was due to lack of participations by many of the Women Associations in Kuwait.  IKFS team values the active participation of Women in the seminar, as the event is mainly dealing with Women - Brides problems.

Now the program will be conducted on Friday, 11 April 2014 instead of the earlier planned date of 26 February 2014. The seminar will discuss mainly, how to counter lucrative marriage offer where the family totally ignores even the common cautions that are observed in traditional matchmaking.

Dr. Ghalib Al-Mashoor, President of IKFS said that Woman married to an NRI who is sometimes abandoned even before being taken by her husband to the foreign country of his residence. A quick engagement, followed by a massive wedding, a huge dowry and a honeymoon, after which the NRI husband flies out of India while the wife waits for her visa. The menace of ‘honeymoon brides’ is a big problem to deal with a large number of brides have not seen their husbands after their honeymoon.

The situation is worsened by lack of support network of friends and family and monetary constraints which leaves the deserted wife completely helpless and stranded. Therefore, IKFS thought of conducting an “Awareness seminar for the Indian Women” who are working in various fields and countries around the globe.

IKFS is expecting participation of both Indian and Kuwaiti women associations in order to express their opinions and suggestions for the problems relating to NRI marriages. For further details contact: Program Coordinator: Shahjahan Jeffri, K. Natarajan, Phone: 99430786 C/o:
