Forced marriage is when someone is made to marry someone else without their consent. They might threaten you or use violence. This is different to an arranged marriage, which take place with the consent of both people.
For example, if someone is told that they must marry someone even though they don’t want to, or if they are threatened with harm or violence if they don’t agree to the marriage, that is forced marriage.
