Our government has legalised the age for marriage in boys and girls. Give reasons as to why one should get married after a certain age.



In our country, the legal age of marriage is 18 years for girls and 21 years for boys. This is because teenage mothers are not prepared mentally or physically for motherhood. Early marriage and motherhood causes health problems in both mother and the child. It also curtails employment opportunities for the young woman and may cause mental agony as she is not ready to shoulder responsibilities of motherhood.

Also, the boys before that age may not be mentally matured and financially secure enough to take on the responsibilities of a family.
