Early Marriage


Iqra Muhammad Jan

Early marriage has become a serious nuisance within the country. Under Fifteen to tweleve years old girls are compelled to marry by their parents, knowing not the risky consequences . At this age a girl cannot take care of herself, is unaware of many things and is not mentally mature. How can she be able to look after children and the husband. In many countries child marriage is banned. But in our country unfortunately it is not, due to giving birth to babies 30,000 women die yearly and among them most of them are under the age of 15 because they do not have the capacity to bear the lethal pain, but yet the government has not overcome it. It is requested to the government to ban child marriage or raise the age of marriage to decrease maternal mortality rate.
