Each year

Each year, 12 million girls are married before the age of 18. That is 23 girls every minute. We have seen that child marriage targets more girls than boys. Boys are affected as well but in majority, the number of victims and the potency of sufferings are way higher for girls. Child marriage means the end to the children’s childhood and this marriage grooming at early age can be a disaster to them as their personal development and health at risk. It is a right human violation that we must end so that all children can achieve a better future.
Marriage grooming can be a disaster because when a girl gets married, she is often expected to drop out of school so that she can focused on family planning. It is proven that in USA, about 50% of the women who are pregnant in their teens only complete their high school education whereas 90% women complete it who never got pregnant in their teens. Education is a basic necessities of life and if their education are low, they will not get highly paid jobs. Therefore, children should get a proper education at the very young age so they can prevent the complications of married life.
