Marriage of minors

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?

  • Happy eid Chitra! Kiya haal hain? As you mentioned, poverty is the main factor. Lack of education is also among the reasons. In India, maybe, the rules are strict to lessen this problem. Thanks Chitra for your comment.
  • Khob khon Pint! It's not good to use the need of the poor for our own desires. Thanks Pint for your valuable time. I really appreciate it.

    I think lack of conscience for buyers and poverty for parents.

    It's good that the government implement law on this, Still Poverty exist.

    If this mostly happened to refugees It'll be great If only refugees can earn some income on their own, providing them opportunity to work if possible.

  • Hello Mr Dara, Assalam Walaikum. Thanks for sharing with us such a good and touching topic. I think kids are kids. They, in their golden time are supposed to live happily in the hustle and bustle of this world.

    It's really a big tragedy to hear if some of them are still forced into a weird relationship like this, even people name it as marriage, but actually it is a child abuse and torture.

    Of course, the above mentioned reasons like poverty, the absence of conscience, and wars are the main causes, others are like corruption, low education and illiterate.

    What can we do, or what can I do? May be just pray and thanks God for not living in a such condition. And then, if someday or somewhere if I meet a case like this, I will willingly lend my hands.

    Keep learning, keep helping others will make us live happily. Everyday is a gift, don't ever let it go with nothing.
  • Xie xie Sherol Chan. I agree with your point of view. They are just kids. and some people use them to gain certain goals and money is one of them. Thanks Shero for your comment.

  • I can't accept the marriage of minors. As for me, they are just kids, they know nothing about their lives while the parents do the choice for them.

  • I think the best solution is to stop war in the given countries and help those countries to imoprove the programmes of  education that result in weak pastgraduate weither from high school or college ones .

    working on doing laws that prevent people from forcing their daugthers to marry those who are elder than them under the pretext of poverty  ...etc

  • 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!

    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.

    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 .
