Child Marriage was quite common in our country in early times. After bringing some awareness among the public, they have diminished making marriages for children less than the age of 18 years. This culture of making child marriages abolished as the time passed all these years. Still, there are some unrecognized villages in our country wherein people do accept making child marriages. If you think, India is the only country that conducts child marriages then you are certainly erroneous. Yes, you heard it right!
There are several other countries that still follow the custom of organising child marriages. Some of the nations like Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh are still making child marriages. In all these nations, there are millions of girls getting married every year before becoming a major. Due to the massive pressure and impact of parents, some of the child brides forced to get married at a small age. Before turning out to 18 years, millions of girls across the south continent pushed into marriage forcibly.
