What is a marriage of convenience? Is it always a bad thing?

David Dawson Answered:

A marriage of convenience refers to unions where a couple ties the knot for political, cultural, financial, or practical reasons. Common reasons for marriages of convenience include:

  • Getting pregnant
  • Having an arranged marriage
  • Being part of the LGBTQ+ community (in a country where such things are illegal or frowned upon)
  • Royal marriages or marriages involving political gain
  • Marriage to gain access/be able to live in a certain country
These strategic marriages may start loveless or as a form of a contract, but that doesn't mean they will stay that way. For example, many couples in arranged marriages grow to love and deeply respect one another. At the same time,marrying for the wrong reason can lead to a lifetime of resentment and eventually, divorce.
