      She was being courageous and bravely faced what was right for her own sake. She is to be truly admired.  Thanks for sharing the good news, Rahul!

      This is the beginning of a new era in this kind of "tradition". For most westerns, including myself is almost surreal that this practice is still viable in many countries. 

      We have come a long way. Now I wonder, What is next?

      The bravery, courage and honor medal, this young lady deserves.  I hope many others will follow, to stand up for their rights also.  Noone should be forced to marry someone they do not love or   know anything about.  Thanks for sharing.

    Wow... if I was in their positions, I don't think I would have such courage.

    To me, this article really affirms the fact that education is SO important in changing a lot of these types of things.

      Shanna1, I think you are right. Without education you do not know your options.

    Kids are vulnerable and many can't stand up to the swines who take advantage of them. The government in India should make/have a law against it. Maybe, Jail them. That will be a good start.

    It's good you are raising awareness.

    Shukuriya.

      In India here! Child marriage is still a custom... while the motive is mostly money... some believe it to be religious... the fanatics off course.. the law has been made.. but the executive council does not hover!!

      this girl has rattled the cages.. and yes education has made  it possible

    Power to her so courageous! and may this be the beginning of hundreds, breaking free from this horrific crime! I too agree education has proven to be the answer. 

    Good on you for creating this thread!

    Good for her! The recent number of child brides fighting their fate (Nujood Ali being another famous example) is very heartening.

    I thought some of you might enjoy this inspiring article about the young women of Ethiopia fighting back against bride kidnapping and FGM, which is common there and compounds the horror even more:
