This sections is specifically reserved for my fascination with Bride Kidnapping
. Bride kidnapping, also known as marriage by abduction or marriage by capture, is a practice in which a man abducts the woman he wishes to marry. Bride kidnapping has been practiced around the world and throughout history.
Bride kidnapping is distinguished from raptio in that the former refers to the abduction of one woman by one man (and his friends and relatives), and is still a widespread practice, whereas the latter refers to the large scale abduction of women by groups of men, possibly in a time of war.
Some cultures today maintain symbolic bride kidnapping ritual as part of traditions surrounding a wedding, in a nod to the practice of bride kidnapping which may have figured in that culture's history. According to some sources, the honeymoon is a relic of marriage by capture, based on the practice of the husband going into hiding with his wife to avoid reprisals from her relatives, with the intention that the woman would be pregnant by the end of the month.Content:
Possibly bondage, non-con, possibly extreme, possibly F/F, M/F, I'm open to multiple partners: F/M/M, F/F/M, etc., harems, light romance, potentially S&M, and much more- just ask! What I'm Looking For?
My fascination isn't necessarily just the Non-Con aspect sexually. I'm also interested in the emotional growth of the relationship? I'm also interested in exploring culture/religious reasons behind the "marriage". (Does not have to be a real religion or culture.) I think sexually I'm interested in exploring many different avenues but I think naturally, no matter how their relationship ends (be it happily ever after or whatever), sexually it will be Non-Con. Additionally, I think setting and time plays a part in this game but I think there can be scenarios that explore this situation in modern setting. So for those of you who don't like "medieval" or "fantasy" type settings, that's ok! For my ladies or may be interested in this type of setting, honestly I'm not opposed to this! I think it could be a lot of fun to see that so though I may only mention male pairings, I'm open to Female X Female.
Widow inheritance, also known as bride inheritance, is a cultural and social practice whereby a widow is required to marry a kinsman of her late husband, often his brother. It is prevalent in certain parts of Africa.

A girl or a woman is kidnapped by the groom-to-be, who is often helped by his friends. The victim is often raped by the groom-to-be, for her to lose her virginity, so that the man is able to negotiate a bride price with the village elders to legitimize the marriage. The future bride then has no choice in most circumstances, but to accept: if the bride goes back to her family, she (and her family) will often be ostracized by the community because the community thinks she has lost her virginity, and she is now 'impure'.
A forced marriage is also often the result of a dispute between families, where the dispute is 'resolved' by giving a female from one family to the other. Vani is a cultural custom found in parts of Pakistan wherein a girl is forcibly married as part of the punishment for a crime committed by her male relatives. Vani is a form of forced child marriage, and the result of punishment decided by a council of tribal elders named jirga.
Forced marriage can occur in the situation where in an unmarried couple, one partner forces (through violence or threats) the other partner to enter the marriage.
*this is very flexible! Think of this: what if my character is in a relationship with yours but your character is not a resident of the country and needs marriage in order to do that. But my character is reluctant... There are other avenues it can go but just to give an idea!
In conflict areas, women and girls are sometimes forced to marry men on either side of the conflict. Historically, this was common throughout the world, with women from the communities of the war enemy being considered "spoils of war", who could be kidnapped, raped and forced into marriage or sexual slavery. Because women were regarded as property, it seemed reasonable to see them as the chattel of the war enemy, which could now be appropriated and used by the winner.
Bride kidnapping was also a custom in Bulgaria. With the consent of his parents and the aid of his friends, the abductor would accost his bride and take her to a barn away from the home, as superstition held that pre-marital intercourse might bring bad luck to the house. Whether or not the man raped his bride, the abduction would shame the girl and force her to stay with her kidnapper to keep her reputation.
