    kidnapping—the nonconsensual bride kidnapping is what is victimizing women and their families in Kyrgyzstan. To see if nonconsensual marriage actually existed and showed trends of increasing, researchers Russell Kleinbach, Mehrigiul Ablezova, and Medina Aitieva, conducted investigations and research in a small village in Kyrgyz that was large enough to provide a representative sample and small enough so that all women in the village could be surveyed (Kleinback, Ablezova, Aitieva, 2005). Other factors that determined why the north-eastern region village was chosen included strong ties between the researchers and the residents and the existence of current census data on the village—this provided the most accurate data for the research at hand.

    EE:Establishing Evidence: Kidnapping alone is already against the law and actually so is bride kidnapping. E:Evidence: There are already laws in Kyrgyzstan that quite clearly state the fact that bride kidnappings or the kidnappings of women into marriage is illegal, but that does little to nothing from helping the women or stopping the men(Chung).

Secondly she would have to live with the fact that she single handedly caused him to get killed rather than start afresh in a new life.
