The marriage of minors or underage is growing rapidly on these days. Because of poverty or any other lack of substantial matters, people marry their children, they are girls of age between seven, eight or up to twelve or thirteen. If you go to refugee camps, the matter is bigger than you can imagine. For the lack of food, shelter or education, people marry their girls. Some of these girls do not know what marriage is. Greedy ones are taking the advantage of the situations. Those who are rich offer their money for a nine-year-old girl. To add more petrol to the fire, there are some people who arrange these marriages, taking the need of the family and the demand of the other side who wants to satisfy his desire.

Is it because of poverty,  the absence of conscience or the wars?

Is there any remedy for this matter?

Khahish mikonam doste khbam Narin! For the age of twelve, it depends, some children at tweleve can reach puberty. The age of fifteen considered a grown woman. I married a child at 12, I was about thirty or thirty five. I have stated this point before, here in area, you can marry a child of 12 or 13 after she accepts and her parents approve that. The court will not object. Thanks Narin!

it is not really acceptable ,but unfortunately still we hear this kind of marriage specially in villages i think.of course not under 12 nowa days but i think even 15 and under it is not a good age for marriage.tnx for sharing .

I totally agree with Ahasan Khundaker! This can be acceptable in no ways and for no reasons!

Thanks, Steven Mehler for your comment! Ahasan Khundaker's comment was very short and to the point. He described it as a disease. I agreed with him. By the way, where have you been? I need your opinion about that discussion drugs, too. Thank you.

Shookran ya Esraa! Thanks, Esraa for pressing the like button and thanks for your add. I am really happy to be one of your friends. 

So it is a good topic and good questions ,so from my opinion about first one, i think it can be  because of poverty  and custom because there are some ethnic group married their children in early age. and about last one : yes there is any remedy for this matter, to sensitized people who practice this kind of things.

Merci beaucoup mon ami, Massal! You are very reasonable. Sensitizing people is not easy. It's a long and hard work. Thanks, Massal for your nice comment!

Hi,dara

Ithink the phenomenon marriage of minors consider common nowdays 

specially in arabic and islamic countries, there are lot of reasons make 

It spread and take high numbers ,the economic situation first role which

Consider responsible for happening of this phenomenon ,then social ,culture 

level ,misunderstanding the real instructures islam ,unfortantely some fathers

They are push their girls to marry specially in rural reigions although their girls

Dont have suitable ages,and bodies to become mothers for childs, iknow some

Cases in my country happend ,the girl who marry man older her ,she was 11 ,her husband 36 ,the girl died after intercourses night as result of blooding .

hi Gino

i think you are well knowing better than others about war and its circumstances

i magine a father with daughters, in a refugees camp  seeing war lords choosing their victims beneth youth, male or female, the parents unable to defend them from human predators.

then the victims retun to family  extremely broken,  what a luck to remain alife!

can you imagine how is the father or mother  feeling?

sometimes we are obliged to choose the softest evil!

who is  against  mariage of minors, nowadays?

those who know  cosequences of war, and still causing wars

what a summum of hypocresy!

Astagfirullah! Haram alaihoo! The man who killed his wife on her wedding day, did he marry her to get rid of her? Strange things happen. I really agree with the points you have stated there. The economic situation is always a major issue in many cases. Poverty pushes you to do what you do not wish to do. For the guy who was 36, it's possible for him to marry that 11 year old child on condition that he waits for her two or three years to be a grown woman. Thanks, Mr. Sadeg for your analysis about the marriage of minors.

Shookran bizzaf Voyager! You know, I and many commentators have not mentioned that point. I forgot about this ordeal which had already happened to both parents, especially in refugee camps.  Maybe we concentrated on the side of the predators rather than that of the parents. Most members including me were focusing on the rich man who is searching to satisfy his psychotic desires along with those contact people who arrange those kinds of marriages. We could not see the agony and the hard circumstances for both parents living in such conditions. They suffer a lot and they think the easiest evil is that, as you have stated at the end of your nice and useful intervention. Thank you very much, my dear good friend!
