Child marriage was one of the major problems in India. But with time, this issue has been solved to some extent but the child bride problem still exists.
This is horrible, but it’s there.
People who do this crime don’t even realize what they are doing to their innocent daughters.
Little girls are married to men who are the age of their uncle or father. People think that their girls will be safe and happy with them but the reality is that these grooms make her life as disgusting as hell. All this happens in India because marriage is regarded as the final destination. I mean if you are a girl and not married you don’t deserve to be respected. People think that a girl is meant to be married as soon as the family could manage to do so. In villages, this crime takes place a lot because of a lack of education. This destroys a girl not only physically but also mentally.
This kind of sick mentality should be changed by educating these people, by making them understand the importance of a girls life and her decisions.
