Signed & Noted, my friend. No girl should be getting married. A woman should have the right to choose who she wants to marry, and never be forced into marriage.

I find it sad that this still goes on. I know girls at my school who were forced to marry men they did not know or love by there family's. Some of them were only 14 and know this happens to younger girls. This should not happen to any one hope this petition really helps.

Forced marriage is a terrifying prospect for a young girl, but should be banned for all ages, everywhere!
