Child Marriage: The Promise Of A ‘Better Life’

Child marriage is considered a way of giving children a chance at a better life whilst also reducing one more mouth to feed. Low-income families face the real burden of putting food on the table. As a result of that, studies have shown a higher prevalence of child marriages among low-income communities.
