noted signed shared - children should not be forced into marriges, which will be a living hell for them. They deserve the time to grow up and make their own desicions too.

N&S. "The Western African country of Niger has one of the highest incidences, if not the highest incidence, of forced marriages in the world. This includes child marriages, defined as a marriage in which a spouse is below is the age of 18, and in which case — in Niger, as well as most countries which experience child marriage — the under-aged is a girl."
