Indo-Kuwait Friendship Society, Kuwait now is set to conduct the Seminar “problems relating to NRI Marriages” on Friday at 5:00 p.m. 11 April 2014 at “Echo Restaurant” in Farwaniya.
NRI marriages’, as generally understood, are between an Indian woman from India and an Indian man residing in another country (thus NRI – non-resident Indian), either as Indian citizen (when he would legally be an ‘NRI’) or as citizen of that other country (when he would legally be a PIO – person of Indian origin).
The problem is especially related to Indian women who get trapped in deceptive matrimony situations with overseas Indians. They also ignore that in case of things going wrong in an NRI marriage, the woman’s recourse to justice is greatly constrained and complex. The aggravated risk in such marriage is the woman is being ‘isolated’ far away from home in an alien land, facing language constraints, communication problems, lack of proper information about the local criminal justice, police and legal system.
The problem is manifold and it incorporates issues like dowry and various other types of harassment of married women in foreign countries, marriages of convenience, concealment of earlier existing marriage by the husband before marrying an Indian woman. Another very important issue which needs attention is lack of social security faced by an Indian woman in a foreign country when the marriage is not working.
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.
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. For further details contact: Program Coordinator: Zainab/Natarajan, Phone: 99398868 C/o: firstname.lastname@example.org
