From India? Amazing! Of course, enforcing this law is the tricky part; however, it is a big step in the right direction.

So, even though it's considered rape, they can still be married off long before they turn 18. We'll see how often they actually act on this and arrest the husband.

Yes, but enforcement will be a major issue...especially in the outlying districts.
