f:274 -    Can a girl be married without her consent
Country : Netherlands,
Name : Fareeda
Question:     Can a girl be married off without her consent?


............................................................................
Answer:     Islam regards the consent of the girl also as necessary.  The consent of an adult and sane girl is also necessary for marriage.  

However, if a girl wants to marry someone below her, then the parents can stop her and still if she ends up marrying, then they can get the marriage annulled.  Also, if the dower is less than the alimony of her mother/aunt, then the parents/guardian can demand it.  They can also demand a separation  as given in Fatawa A'alamgiri, Vol. 1, Pg No. 292/293/294.

And Allah Most High knows best.
