Presenting ground breaking results, this documentary reveals that many Muslim women in Britain are unaware that their religious marriages are not recognised in British law. As a result they are left without the same rights and protections afforded to couples in a legally recognised marriage.

The Truth About Muslim Marriage examines whether centuries old marriage laws need to be updated to reflect and better serve today’s multicultural, multi-faith country.

What the Press Say:

The Observer “Without question the most important documentary of the week…A long overdue call for the civil and religious ceremonies to be combined. ”

The Sun “This informative programme looks at the results of a C4 survey that reveals many Muslin women don’t realise their religious marriages aren’t recognised in British law, which has huge implications in terms of rights”

The Times ‘Pick of the Day’ “Children suffer, women suffer, men get away scot free” says one Imam. Britain it seems lags behind most of the world on this matter.”
