marriage of convenience


Definitions of marriage of convenience


a financial, practical, or political arrangement between two people, groups, or political parties etc that would not normally be expected to work together

Like all coalition governments, this is a marriage of convenience.


a marriage arranged or entered into for a (non-romantic) financial, practical, or political purpose that benefits of one or both spouses, such as to gain nationality

The family never went to the wedding, or met the groom, and believe the short-lived union was a marriage of convenience, purely for a green card.
