My message to other parents is that they should not think of marrying their daughters at a young age, girls should go to school. I don't want any girl to suffer as I did. Girls should be educated in order to be able to live happily and in dignity.

Thank you for calling on the government of Yemen to live up to its international obligations by passing a law prohibiting child marriage so that girls are no longer forced to undergo the harmful physical and psychological effects of child marriage.

Signed and noted. Thanks for sharing, Freya. Child marriage is disgusting and wrong. It's high time something was done about it.

Even though I completely, concur with this article, you do realize, that asking these males to control themselves and restrain their pedophilia needs, is suggesting that they engage in adult behavior. Make no mistake, they may call it tradition, but an intelligent person calls it what it is, PEDOPHILIA.

I only wish this would happen; however, we must remember, that this activity has been in effect for many years. As always, it will take the females to enact change, even though many will suffer the consequences, perhaps, with their lives.
This is a no-win situation for many years to come.
