Since Kyrgyzstan’s Independence the ancient practice of Alaa Kachuu (grab and run) revived. Over half of Kyrgyz women marry after being kidnapped by the men who become their husbands. Some escape, but most are persuaded to stay by tradition and fear of scandal. The practice has its roots in nomadic customs, but remains at odds with modern Kyrgyzstan.
