    Internationally there is growing recognition that child, early and forced marriage is a human rights violation and a severe impediment to social and economic development. As a leading donor for international development, the U.S. has a role to play in the global movement to end child, early and forced marriage.

    In the last few years, the U.S. government’s commitments to ending the practice have markedly increased, through development as well as diplomatic work.

    In March 2016, the U.S. State Department adopted the Global Strategy To Empower Adolescent Girls, which includes specific provisions on ending child, early and forced marriage and addressing the needs of married girls globally.

    Developed by the State Department, in coordination with USAID, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and the Peace Corps, this whole-of-government strategy aims to coordinate the work and engagement of U.S. agencies to respond to the needs of adolescent girls in a holistic way.

    This strategy meets the requirement of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA) that the U.S. Secretary of State must “establish and implement a multi-year, multi-sectoral strategy to end child marriage.”

      A complete elaborated answer. Well documented

    Puberty has been developing earlier and earlier, maybe due to all the hormones in our foods that didn't exist as much when the foods were not doctored as they are today.

    That would account for child mothers, I have no idea why marriage should be more popular today?

    1. Bringing in Muslim immigrants for whom this is the norm.
    2. Growing number of Central American immigrants for whom marrying a girl at 14 or 15 is acceptable and common.

      Central American immigrants and muslims do have this concept of early marriages but the growing number of early marriages are mostly not subjected to these particular populations

      10% of the population consists of illegal immigrants and their children, so yes, it is a big group OK with marrying girls at 16-18
