Predatory Marriage Learning Resources

At the last RSAB Policy and Practice Subgroup, there was a presentation by a member of the Local Authority’s Adult Protection and DoLs Team on the safeguarding topic of predatory marriage.  This typically involves a situation where one person does not have the required mental capacity to consent to marriage but is led into it and taken advantage of by the other party to secure financial or other gains.  Our partners at Age UK published a news item last year which summarises a case involving a 92 year old lady with vascular dementia and terminal cancer.

Rochdale Safeguarding Adult Board (SAB) has developed an excellent 7 Minute Briefing on the topic which can be accessed via the link below:

Another resource is the Hourglass webinar ‘What can be do to prevent predatory marriage?’.  The webinar lasts 1 hour 23 minutes and can be viewed on YouTube.

More information on this topic can be found on the new RSAB webpage for professionals – Predatory Marriage.
