Early and Forced Child Marriage
PDF File Size: 458 KB | Download   
Child, early and forced marriages often mean the end of a girl’s education, setting aside her chances of a vocation or career and undermining her life choices and her human rights. Early marriage can also have life-threatening consequences. Girls who are married at a young age are exposed to early and unwanted pregnancies and often face a higher risk of STIs such as HIV. Many girls also suffer physical, emotional and sexual violence.

41% of girls in Nepal are married before the age of 18. This calls for investments in girls through giving access to education and health services, developing their social and economic assets and ensuring that they can postpone their marriage until they are ready. The Government of Nepal recently endorsed a new National Strategy on Ending Child Marriage and has set the legal age of marriage at 20 to discourage early marriages.
