If a young unmarried boy is well educated i.e. like he is an Engineer, Doctor, Software Professional or Civil Servant etc. in the Government machinery, earning good handsome Salary / Money, then you become a prime candidate for Forced Marriage at gun point. This phenomenon in Bihar is also called "Pakdaua Shaadi" (bright young boys forced into marriage at gun point) for the first time. There is also a film made based on this, Titled Tujhko Pukare
What shall happen is that an affluent / powerful family in which a girl is to married shall track the prospective boy & kidnap the eligible boy at Gun Point & shall ask the boy to marry their daughter by putting a Gun at his forehead. Now whether willing or not willing, boy has no other option but to say Yes to the marriage to save his life. Once the boy says Yes, immediately wedding ceremonies are done so that boy could not change his word or mind later.
So what do you call this weird practice of marriage.
