Works Cited
In many societies, marriage is a celebrated institution signifying a union between two adults and the beginning of their future together as a happy couple but, in other countries young girls suffer vastly from different marriage experience every year. Worldwide, many brides are children, not even teenagers. So young are some girls that they hold onto their toys during the wedding ceremony. Usually these girls become mothers in their early teens, while they are still children themselves. The practice, through sheath in tradition, can result in profound negative consequences for the girls, their families, and their entire community.

Education is the Solution, Not the Problem
In the News: 200 girls were stolen from their homes, assumed to be because of the group Boko Haram, because they were getting an education and were to be forced into marriage. Therefore, U.S. female senators came together, signed a petition, and have been pushing since for this group to be put on the U.S.A.'s "hit list."

The KIOTA Women Health and Development program in Tanzania, Africa is a non-governmental organization that is pushing for more education, lower school dropout rates, less child marriages and pregnancies, and more use of the designed family plan.

In rural Zimbabwe, one family started a chain reaction of educating their children by buying supplies they needed and making sure that all of their gets educated for a bright future.

It has been said that “rising education levels have been a critical factor in increasing the age of marriage in a number of developing countries"
