Bridenapping is a practise wherein the bridenapper gets a wife through physical force. This is done by capturing her, kidnapping her, or abducting her. The most common place where this occurs is Kyrgyzstan, a central Asian country. The bridenappers are almost always nearcels, truecels or involuntary celibates. 1 in 5 women in Kyrgyzstan are bridenappees.
It is viewed as a tradition in Kyrgyszstan and in order to make it seem less traumatic for the girl, they hold a wedding ceremony shortly after and claim that she wasn't a victim of bridenapping, but that the bridenapper is a groom and then a husband and that she was rescued from hitting the Wall and getting milkmired.
In Japan they refer to it as Ottoi Yomejo.
