Have no fear, with all the immigration going on with David Cameron in power, Sharia Law will come into full power; with daily reading of the Qu'ran being mandatory in all British schools.
I believe Islam being the religion of peace will allow the Brits to continue believing they are fucking monkeys. In fact they might even insist. Then they will apply their Sharia law to deal with infidel monkeys. Any wonder why the Americans are resisting evolution. They see how it is playing out in Britain and don't like it.

Linkypoo.

Don't know if it'll make much difference but it's a step in the right direction.
Do they nullify the marriage as well?

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Probably not legally valid in the UK anyway, not sure.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

They have been rendered illegal in the UK as little as two weeks ago:

As for invalidation - probably, I recall Ellen DeGeneres's marriage was invalidated at one point due to alternating laws regarding homosexual marriage. Homosexuality and forced marriage are not synonymous but I'm putting in reference. Forced marriages are usually very traumatic to the people involved so I believe that they would be invalidated.

Most marriages in the UK are nullified through the prenuptial agreements signed before marriage.

Tried to search up the debates on this. It goes back to January where the Scottish parliament voted near overwhelmingly--101 to 4 abstentions--to allow the UK Parliament to create a law that covers the entire UK that would criminalize forced marriage. What I can get from one debate online is some questions on the procedure, whether or not current laws are sufficient, and whether or not criminal charges would dissuade victims. I will deal with the last: bollocks! That is the same argument that underage victims will not testify against abusive parents, relatives, teachers, That Guy in the Box because of fear the offender will go to jail. A concern, perhaps, but not reality. The "Sports Secretary" of the Scottish Parliament addresses this directly and notes that the fact the offender may be prosecuted empowers victims to act. She also nicely summarizes past issues with how domestic violence was prosecuting requiring spouses to testify against the offender. Currently, that is no longer necessary. A crime is a crime. It does not "go away" if the victim is afraid to testify.

The UK signed an Constantinople Istanbul Protocol which included a paragraph on violence against women which specifies forced marriage. To ratify that the UK would need to make sure forced marriage is criminalized.

To asthmatic's point, it would seem that such marriages are not considered legal to begin with.

All marriages to Brits should be nullified. Who in their right mind would marry a Brit? A race that shamelessly claims they are fucking monkeys.

It is ironic for a country where marriages are in decline to pass legislation that makes it more difficult for people to marry or stay married. The number of forced marriage cases are a fraction of the number of divorces filed annually. The Brits should look for the causes of broken marriages and divorces instead of attacking traditions that keep couples together. They can start with the scandals in the royal family and its legitimacy.
