Child marriage is still a common practice in most of the Middle East, Asia and Africa, especially in countries that practice Sharia laws.
As you can see in the video below, a 13-year-old girl from Yemen speaks up against the practice after fleeing her family who sold her into forced marriage to a 35-year-old man. She describes how she was hospitalized after bleeding for two months after being raped by her husband.
An estimated 15 million girls under 18 are married each year. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence. Everything possible must be done to protect these vulnerable children.
Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha. Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine.
