People Who Reject Marriage Proposals To Pay A Fine–Read The New Law


Women in Chad can no longer turn down marriage proposals from men.

A higher Islamic Council in Mangalmé in North-eastern Chad has passed a law that henceforth, people who reject marriage proposals must pay a fine known as ‘amchilini’.

In effect, women who reject marriage proposals from men will pay a fine between $23 and $39.

Men who fail to accept marriage proposals from women will also pay a fine of $15, gathered.

The Islamic Council argued that its decision was inspired by the Quran.


Many rights activists have opposed the order as it violates a national law guaranteeing freedom of consent to marriage.


The Chadian Women’s Rights League for instance has launched the hashtag #StopAmchilini to denounce the decision.
