Opinion : Child Marriages (robbing of childhood)


Although it is Illegal in Bangladesh, there are still a lot of this happening. According to an article in Human Rights Watch (https://www.hrw.org/news/2015/06/09/climate-change-forcing-bangladeshi-girls-child-marriage) published on 9 June 2015, the author mentioned that although it was illegal, the parents who claim they were not educated enough to understand the law. The article also says 25% marries before turning 15, while 65% before 18. I believe it is totally unfair because the girl is still a 'child', she has not seen much of anything in life.
